About

The Williams News appeared on the periodical landscape in Arizona in July 1891. It was the recognized newspaper of the town of Williams and surrounding Coconino County J.F. Michael, editor and publisher, oversaw its publication in 1892-93, according to Estelle Lutrell’s Newspapers and Periodicals of Arizona 1859-1911.  Local and national stories were topics of the publication and local advertisements helped support the News’s efforts.  A.R. Kilgore, a well-known sheep man of the area, is listed as one of the founders of the Williams News and is thought to have influenced the content of the paper by incorporating more range and livestock news. The weekly publication continued to switch editorial hands throughout its lifespan, including a period of unknown guardianship during the years 1894-96.
