Gazette Appeal - 1897
Introduction from the roll of microfilm from the Alabama Department of Archives and History:
Since its April 9, 1897 issue is labeled "Vol. 1, No. 8" we can assume that the Guin Gazette originated some two months before. Its editor and publisher was W. T. MORGAN, who was soon able to purchase the nearby Hamilton Appeal. A united Gazette-Appeal first appeared on August 27, retaining the numbering of the older Hamilton newspaper. In October, MORGAN sold the Gazette-Appeal to E. L. JONES, who continued it for an undetermined time thereafter with the editorial assistance of J. W. WILDES.
