Vernal Express

1892 - 2008

Kate Jean Boan was founder and editor of the Uintah Pappoose, the pioneer newspaper of eastern Utah. She purchased a printing press from Sears and Roebuck, and began publishing the four-page weekly paper in 1891. In 1892 she sold the newspaper to James Barker, who changed the name to the Vernal Express. James H. Wallis took over management in 1917, and four generations of his family published the paper for the next 90 years.

We extend our thanks to the Uintah County Library for their generous donations.
