Established in 1913 as an independent newspaper, La Prensa was published and edited as a Spanish-language newspaper by Ignacio E. Lozano, in San Antonio. By 1922, the newspaper's circulation was over 16,000 readers, and the newspaper continued publication in Spanish with some advertising in English. At its peak, La Prensa was the most widely circulated Spanish-language newspaper in the United States. During its first two decades, it strove to cover topics for exiles of the Mexican Revolution, from 1910 to 1930. La Prensa devoted considerable coverage to matters relating to Mexico, even while it was the leading publication in opposition to the Mexican Revolution. In mainstream U.S. newspapers from WWI to WWII, European issues were more important than matters in Mexico, and La Prensa played a key role as in representing news about Mexico.
