American Indian and Alaska Native Newspapers and Periodicals, 1826-1924 - Vol. 1

By Daniel F. Littlefield Jr.; James W. Parins | Go to book overview

partner Douglas Gunn decided to publish a daily in addition to the weekly. It was published every day except Monday and began publication at half the size of the weekly. The business manager was John P. Young, who later became the managing editor of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Their own projection for the paper was a fair statement of what the paper contained. They would give full local news, harbor and shipping news, law reports, proceedings of supervisors and city trustees, real estate activities, telegraphic news of the world, correspondence and news summaries from the mining regions and from Southern California and Arizona, a "judicious selection" of miscellaneous matter, and brief editorials.

Bushyhead sold Gunn his interest in the Daily San Diego Union in June, 1873, and the paper passed from Indian hands. It is presently published as the San Diego Union.

Ridge (Chees-quat-a-law-ny, or Yellow Bird) was born in the Eastern Cherokee Nation in 1827, the son of John Ridge, who was assassinated in 1839 for having signed the removal treaty at New Echota, Georgia. After his death, the family moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas, where the younger Ridge received his basic education. In 1849 he killed another Cherokee and fled from the Cherokee Nation to Missouri and then went to California in 1850. 1 He mined, worked as a newspaper correspondent, and edited the Daily California American, The DailyBee
