Before becoming today's Herald Journal, Logan's newspaper had four different titles: The Logan Leader (1879-1882), The Utah Journal (1882-1889), The Logan Journal (1889-1891), and The Journal (1892-1931). This web site includes issues beginning in 1879 and ending in 1898. On September 23, 1885, the Utah Journal wrote: "Pat Lannan, the American gentleman who owns and controls the Salt Lake Tribune, and who is by virtue of being chief of that paper the sole controller, governor and high office holder in general, of this Territory, passed through Logan last Sunday on a trip north, and actually ate dinner at a Mormon hotel. It is believed that our city was not demoralized to a very great extent through the occurrence."
