About

Newspapers rapidly appeared throughout the five nations of Indian Territory after the 1889 land run, and the Santa Fe and MKT railways penetrated the area. Thousands of non-Indian settlers organized towns along the lines, establishing dozens of newspapers. The Daily Ardmoreite first appeared on October 28, 1893, in Ardmore, Carter County. Established by several local businessmen, the Ardmoreite was the first daily newspaper published in Indian Territory. It was just another small community newspaper in the Chickasaw Nation until Sidney Suggs purchased it in June of 1897 for $2,400. Under his direction, the Ardmoreite became the leading news provider in Indian Territory.
