About this collection

Jasper News banner

 

 

Starting out in 1898 as a four-page paper, The Jasper News declared its politics to be best described by the phrase “The greatest good to the greatest number.” The paper covered developments in southern Missouri, including news from rural towns such as Lebanon, Sheridan, Blue, and Bethel. Under the direction of various editors, the paper maintained a continual focus on news involving local markets and agriculture and gave detailed accounts of births, marriages, deaths, and travel. The paper expanded to 12 pages per issue before ceasing publication in 1924.
