The Ogden newspapers available on this webpage are listed below.

  • Ogden Junction (1879-1881)
  • Ogden Herald (1881-1887)
  • Ogden Standard (1888-1908)
  • Ogden Standard Examiner (1923-1927)

Gaps in the collection of the daily Standard are being filled with the semi-weekly version of that paper: Jan-Dec 1889, Jan-Jun 1896, Jan-Jun 1900, Jul-Dec 1905, Jul-Dec 1907.

The Utah Digital Newspapers Program would like to extend its most sincere thanks to the Weber County Library for their generous donations and the loan of their original newspapers for the creation of this collection.
