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. On April 19, 1883, the Wichita City Eagle, the dominant newspaper of south-central Kansas, changed its name to the Wichita Eagle, which, like its predecessor, was a Republican-affiliated weekly newspaper. As publisher, Marshall M. Murdock, commonly remembered as "Marsh," expressed to the newspaper's readers that "the ambition of its founder is, and will be, to make [the Eagle] the leading journal of the Great Southwest." On January 27, 1888, the Eagle changed names again to the Wichita Weekly Eagle to help differentiate it from its daily counterparts.

Creator: Murdock, Marshall Marcellus, 1837-1908
