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. Established as the first daily newspaper in Wichita to carry the Eagle name, the Daily Eagle printed four pages of news each day except Monday beginning on May 20, 1884. The Daily Eagle boasted of having "the largest circulation of any daily paper in southwestern Kansas." Although the Daily Eagle only produced a mere 17 issues, its name remains synonymous with its successors, as well as with the city itself. On June 8, 1884, the Daily Eagle became the Wichita Daily Eagle.

View and search this newspaper by clicking on the Chronicling America link below. 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. After changing its name from the Daily Eagle, editor Marshall M. Murdock published the Wichita Daily Eagle for the first time on June 8, 1884.

From its first issue, the Wichita Daily Eagle embraced some of the latest formatting changes in the newspaper industry, explaining that "such a thing is unprecedented in American journalism - a border town with a nine-column daily." It claimed to be the first newspaper ever to be "printed on a power press in this valley and its presses the first to run by steam." On August 18, 1886, the title reverted to the Wichita Eagle, although its editors, affiliation, and audience remained unchanged. These early renditions of the Eagle paved the way for numerous successors, including the Wichita Eagle we know and read today.

View and search this newspaper by clicking on the Chronicling America link below. 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."

View and search this newspaper by clicking on the Chronicling America link below. 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.
