Iowa second newspaper published in 1837


MONTROSE (KWWL) -- Iowa's second newspaper was first published June 28, 1837.

The Western Adventurer was published in Montrose.  Dr. Isaac Galland, who brought the first teacher to Iowa, was editor and publisher.

The paper was a financial failure. After a few issues had been printed, it was sold to James G. Edwards. He moved it to Fort Madison and began, in 1838, publishing the Fort Madison Patriot.

Iowa's first newspaper, the Du Buque Visitor, was established May 11, 1836.
