Years in print:
In 1851, Franz Saler established Tages-Chronik (“Daily Chronicle”), a two-cent morning paper, with a bias in favor of Catholicism. Among its early editors was Anton Boeckling; later (in 1858) the name of Adelbert Loehr appeared as editor. Tages-Chronik lasted some twelve years, when Mr. Saler sold the advertising patronage to Carl Daenzer, of the new Anzeiger des Westens, and also disposed of his type.
