Save to active project

After the war, the emphasis was on school news. School events, pupil lists, curriculum, and social news such as YMCA activities were commonly published. There were, however, articles on such topics as sobriety and industriousness.

On February 28, 1922, Perkins Hall, home of the Printing Department at the Santee school, burned, destroying the two presses, the paper cutter, and furniture used in printing not only The Word Carrier and Iapi oaye, but Anpao,* the Episcopalian periodical, as well. The Word Carrier and Iapi oaye were printed at Springfield, South Dakota, until that fall, when new equipment permitted printing to resume at Santee. Meanwhile, in May Miss Riggs left the paper, and Frederick Riggs edited it alone until the summer of 1933.

In the 1930s, The Word Carrier remained a school paper, but there was also emphasis on community affairs. In July, 1933, the Reverend Rudolf Hertz became editor. He served until October, 1936, when he was replaced by Millard M. Fowler, who was assisted by Elmer E. Erickson. At that time, The Word Carrier was publisher by the Santee Press, and a slight change was made in the title. Fowler continued to edit The Word Carrier until it was discontinued in August, 1937.
