Administrative History: The Winnipeg Tribune, one of
western Canada's oldest newspapers, was founded in
1890 by L.R. Richardson and D.L. McIntyre who scraped
together $7000 to take over the press and premises of the
old Winnipeg Sun. Struggling under the restraints of
outdated equipment and no telegraph service, the new
paper survived and with the aid of Winnipeg's growing
population and economic boom fast became a viable
alternative to the rival Winnipeg Free Press. While primarily
regarded as an independent liberal paper covering local
events and personalities, the Tribune also reported on
national and international news. After 90 years of operation,
the Winnipeg Tribune ceased publication unexpectedly in
August of 1980 as a result of negotiations between
competing newspaper chains.

Digitized Material: The digitized material from the
Winnipeg Tribune fonds consists of newsclippings and
photographs pertaining to refugees, immigration policy, and
immigration among Czechoslovaks, Hungarians, Chinese,
Japanese, English, Mennonites, Portugese, and
Vietnamese.
