Canadian Record

The Canadian Record began publishing in 1893 and continues today. This weekly newspaper was and still is "Devoted to the interests of Canadian and the Surrounding Country" as stated in the publications early masthead atop the front page. Shortly after the Canadian Record began it merged with the Canadian Enterprise when its publisher and editor C. M. Hall left for the west coast. By 1933 the front page boasted, "It's got to be good to be advertised." Early editors include L.P. Loomis and Joseph M. Nobles.

This is one of seven newspapers published in Canadian: the Free Press (1887-1888), the Crescent (1888-1893), the Record (1893-present), the Enterprise (1891-1912), the Advertiser, (which later became the Hemphill County News, 1938-1971), the Sand Barr (1933-1949), and the short-lived Monday Morning News (1916).
