The Provo Daily Times

Library Holdings: 1 August 1873

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.
