About this collection

Wentzville Union banner

The Wentzville Union was established in 1891 by W.S. Dickey. The paper was sold to Charles Richards in 1903. As sole editor Richards transitioned The Wentzville Union from a partisan Republican newspaper into a politically independent paper. In 1910, The Union was purchased and sold in quick succession by William Rohrkaste to E.H. Winter. The paper changed hands again in 1917 when it was acquired by J.F. Borhop. Following Bornhop’s death in 1933, his son A.W. Bornhop took over as publisher. He owned the paper until 1935, when it was purchased by his sister, Carrye B. Sidebottoms, and Editor John Boos. In 1955 The Union was sold to publisher Ralph Dummit.
