Manitoba Business: Dauphin Herald

In October 1904, the Dauphin Herald at Dauphin was founded by Fred F. Moore. He operated it until mid-1907 when it was taken over by George King and his son William D. King. They later merged it with the Dauphin Press into the Dauphin Herald and Press. After George King’s death in 1924, the paper was managed by a group including his sons and son-in-law, William S. Marsh.
