Did you know Utah once had a newspaper called Women's Exponent, which for decades starting the late 1800s advocated for voting rights for Utah women as well as educational and economic opportunities?
Emmeline B. Wells, the newspaper's editor for 37 years beginning in 1877, wrote under the name Blanche Beechwood, also reporting Mormon Relief Society news, according to the Utah State Historical Society.
Wells' photo is among those in this fascinating Look Back gallery featuring historical Utah newspapers. Those of us who live in Utah today and are most familiar with The Salt Lake Tribune, the Deseret News and a few other newspapers may be surprised to learn Salt Lake City once had numerous daily papers. Even tiny Corinne once had the Daily Reporter, pictured in its tent-like office in 1869.
