The Iron County Register took “Our God, Our Country, and Truth” as its motto when it commenced publication in 1867. Although the early editors looked favorably on Conservative politics, they claimed that the Register would neither “advocate nor oppose any measure simply because it is promulgated by a certain party.” Rather, the “chief object will be the social, moral, and physical development of Southeast Missouri.”
An influential paper, the Register was published weekly for nearly a century (1867-1965). Digital issues are available from July 6, 1867 to December 25, 1879. This newspaper is also available for research on microfilm through August 26, 1965.
