The first issue of the Dodge City Times was published on May 20, 1876. Readership extended beyond Ford County into the unsettled, frontier regions of southwest Kansas. Walter C. Shinn, only 22 years old when he established the Times, worked as proprietor and editor along with his younger brother Otis "Lloyd" Shinn. The Dodge City Times had several different editors, before joining forces with the Western Kansas Ensign, thus becoming the Dodge City Times-Ensign in January 1892.
