About

The Evening Capital News, a daily paper published every afternoon and Sunday morning, was a cornerstone of life in Boise, Idaho, from 1899 to 1927. Six days a week, the masthead read Evening Capital News, while on Sundays it was the Sunday Capital News. The journal began as a modest four-page publication and grew with the city. By 1920, Boise's population had reached 30,000, and the Capital News had increased to 12 pages. The Capital News also succeeded in expanding its circulation to other states including Oregon, Washington, Massachusetts, Illinois, Texas, and New Jersey.
