This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Wichita Eagle was a daily newspaper, published everyday except Mondays, from August 18, 1886 until March 16, 1890. Marshall M. Murdock (1837-1908), a man recognized for his progressive ideas, worked as the editor and publisher. He established the Wichita City Eagle in 1872 and remained with the paper through all its title changes until his retirement in 1906. Murdock believed a strong daily newspaper supporting local and regional commercial interests would help Wichita "not only to be the city of this greatest of great valleys, but possibly, even probably, the city of the State of Kansas."
