In the summer of 1955, I had been a writer/editor in the Associated Press office just off the newsroom of The Herald-Dispatch for about two years when Terry Price, newly graduated from West Virginia University, was hired as the newspaper's Woman's Page Editor.
The hundredth news anniversary brings back many memories.
I grew up in Wayne County, in a little place, called Miller's Fork.
In the early 1970s, my sister Dorothy Goings and I had our very first job working at The Herald-Dispatch passing newspapers seven days a week in the evening.
I’m writing this in regard to the upcoming 100 year anniversary and the question what has The Herald-Dispatch meant to me.
Being the neighborhood paper boy was one of the best jobs I ever had in the early 1970s.
I am pleased to make a contribution to the editorial memorabilia for the 100th anniversary of The Herald-Dispatch.
HUNTINGTON — Through it all — the good, the bad, the great and the tragic — The Herald-Dispatch has been there. The publication celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2009.
When people weren't tending to the farm or working in the new mass production factories, radio, books, art and baseball provided a forum of escape for early 20th century families.
Ernest Thorne remembers when Huntington's Ritter Park was a cow pasture, the Ohio River was shallow enough to wade across and Central City was the place to be.
