Herald-Dispatch photo archives -

Col. Joseph Harvey Long, left, was the dean of West Virginia newspapermen for six decades. At right is local businessman Homer Gebhardt (thanks to Margot Long Brauchli for the information). Long purchased The Advertiser in 1895 and served as its publisher almost continuously until his death in December 1958. He began his career as a printer and was responsible for many of the printing innovations introduced to The Advertiser's pressroom during last century's first 50 years. Date is unknown, although the photo is likely from the late 1940s or early 1950s.

We are scanning the negatives and photos and running some of the photos in the newspaper.

These photos were from a box of 4x5 negatives. They are most likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

Browse through the gallery. If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), e-mail online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
