Henry Tucker McClure had a dream of creating and running a newspaper, so in 1924 he started living that dream with his publication the St. Clair Chronicle. The Republican paper changed hands numerous times throughout the years and in 1952 it merged with the Ozark News though it kept its title. With this merger, Dorothy O. Moore became the new publisher and stayed until the papers end in 1985. In its sixty-one year run, the paper was able to cover national topics such as the Great Depression, World War II, the Korean War, the assassination of J.F.K., Vietnam, and countless stories of the local St. Clair history.
