About

The Clarksburg [West Virginia] Daily Telegram grew out of its weekly counterpart—the Clarksburg Telegram —in 1902. The weekly Telegram had been in publication since 1861, when Robert Northcott founded the paper, then known as the National Telegraph, as a Unionist and Republican vehicle during the Civil War. In 1891, a group of Clarksburg men purchased the Telegram from Northcott, and for over a decade helped grow the paper into one the most prominent in central West Virginia. By 1902, the weekly Telegram's success induced its owners to purchase the local Clarksburg Daily Post, which became the Clarksburg Daily Telegram.
