About this collection

Cameron Sun banner

 The Cameron Sun was established in 1902 by publisher H. L. Cross. He retired his previous nonpartisan paper, The Winston Independent, and re-christened it as The Cameron Sun. Politically democratic in its coverage, The Sun covered all local and political news. From 1914-1920, the Sun was published by Clarence Staples. In 1920, Cameron’s many newspapers were consolidated by publishers C.P Dorsey and B.B. Witt to form a single title: The Cameron Sun and the Weekly Observer. In 1955 B.B. Witt sold the paper to John C. and Bill Bross. The Bross brothers published The Cameron Sun and the Weekly Observer for several months before B.B. Witt bought it back and sold it to T.W. McAllen. Following owner T.W. McAllen’s death in 1970, his wife, Mrs. T.W. McAllen, took over as publisher. In 1975 the Cameron Sun and Weekly Observer was consolidated with the Cameron Citizen by publisher Donald M. Weaver to form the Cameron Citizen Observer.
