MHS Centennial Business: Deloraine Times & Star

The original name on the masthead in the first issue on Thursday, 10 November 1887 was the Deloraine Weekly Times & Turtle Mountain and Souris River Gazette. This later changed to The Deloraine Times to compete more effectively with the Deloraine Advertiser. After the death of its founder, William Henry Daubney, in 1895 at the age of 35, his widow Florence carried on as publisher and editor for five years, perhaps the first woman in Manitoba to run a weekly newspaper. In 1919 it became the Times and Waskada News, and in 1960 adopted the present name Deloraine Times & Star. It has been designated as an MHS Centennial Business.
