Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809303647, Hardcover)

A well-known policy maker in the field of agriculture, long­time editor-in-chief of the Farm Journal, talks informally about his first business venture, that of owning and editing the Covington Republican, a county seat weekly newspaper in Covington, Indiana, where “the leading industry was clearly the public schools and the second largest enterprise was the courthouse.” Wheeler McMillen shares his deepening famil­iarity with a small Midwest town—its politics, economics, and social structure. He views the town through the eyes of a young stranger, arriving in 1914 and struggling to build an outstanding newspaper, his weekly on the Wabash. Wheeler McMillen tells many of the stories that were not printed at that time, and many that were.


Now a well-known Republican leader, Wheeler McMillen tells of how he first joined the Republican party, local political innuendos as he discovered them, and the gradual strengthen­ing of his political activities while yet maintaining the inde­pendence peculiar to the county weekly. Wheeler McMillen’s growth years between 1914 and 1918 have previously been little known; they are presented in detail in this volume. A New Horizons in Journalism book.
