Seeing a need for a paper in the mining town of Webb City, W.A. Snodgrass created the Daily Register in 1891. Snodgrass published and edited the Democratic paper for the next eleven years, eventually selling it to Arthur Rozelle on January 1, 1902. Rozelle changed the name to the Webb City Register. Under Rozelle’s management, the paper thrived. Rozelle died in 1912 and his widow, who had worked as a reporter for the paper for many years, took over publishing until 1918 when the paper was discontinued.
