Publication Name:

St. Louis Daily Evening Herald and Commercial Advertiser

Years in print:



In 1835 the Daily Evening Herald and Commercial Advertiser attempted daily publication. The paper commented that Louisville had two daily papers and Cincinnati had four dailies while it appeared St. Louis could not support one. The paper did not survive the year.

R. M. Treadway & J. W. Albright, publishers. Paper was nicknamed  the “Little Daily” because of its size, 11.5” X 13.5”. It espoused the values of the Southern Whigs. Publishers found it very difficult to fill up a daily  paper with news since there was no daily mail service to St. Louis to bring news from the East. Albright left in September of 1835 and the paper folded in November of that year.
