Return of The Chronicle

News >  Pacific NW

Evening edition: The Spokane Chronicle, returning July 12 as e-edition, served community for 111 years

The true story of the Chronicle, which lasted from that first four-page edition in 1881 that announced the arrival of the Northern Pacific railway in Spokane, to August 1992, is intertwined with its sister publication, the Spokesman-Review, and competition between the two. It's also a story of buttercups and criminals, cute babies and roving afternoon paperboys.

Special delivery: Paperboys (and some girls) recall the highs and lows of delivering the Spokane Chronicle

Every afternoon for decades, young men (and sometimes women) slung canvas bags over their shoulders after class and slung Chronicle papers onto porches across the Inland Empire. Several responded to a recent call by The Spokesman-Review for memories of those formative years, including the occasional dodgy subscriber, vicious dog and, of course, the spoils of their paychecks.
