1873

The Provo Daily Times

The Daily Times was Provo's first newspaper. Founded by R. G. Sleater, Robert T. McEwan, Oscar F. Lyons, and Joseph T. McEwan. The first issue appeared 1 Aug 1873. Within a short time it was realized that the community was insufficient to support a daily and the last issue was published on 4 Apr 1874. The paper then became the Utah County Times and was issued three times a week.
