McKinney Democrat Gazette

The Weekly Democrat–Gazette, February 8, 1934.

[This was an anniversary issue consisting of several sections and 22 pages.]

Combined Their Papers Nearly 28 Years Ago.
Tom W. PERKINS and Walter B. WILSON formed business partnership July 15, 1906 under firm name of Perkins & Wilson, Editors, Publishers, and Proprietors of the Daily Courier-Gazette and Weekly Democrat-Gazette. The firm is one of the oldest, continuous concerns without change in any line of business in the entire county.

Tom W. PERKINS began his newspaper career on the Wylie Rustler, which he established in 1891 and sold in 1897. He acquired the Weekly Gazette, McKinney, in August 1897, from Clint THOMPSON, who established it on May 4, 1886. On March 17, 1899 Mr. Perkins launched the Daily Gazette. He published his Weekly at the county seat nine years and Daily for seven years, prior to consolidating them with Walter b. WILSON’s Daily and Weekly papers on July 15, 1906.

Walter B. WILSON entered newspaper work on June 1, 1894, immediately after concluding, on the last of May, attending school at the old McKinney Institute. He began as local editor and solicitor on the Weekly Democrat, then owned by F. C. THOMPSON. On July 12, 1900, he became equal partner with Mr. THOMPSON. In 1901, THOMPSON & WILSON purchased the Daily Courier and Semi-Weekly Courier publications from C. R. BALL. In 1902, J. Frank SMITH bought a third interest in the Weekly Democrat, that had absorbed the Semi-Weekly Courier and in the Daily Courier which they continued to publish. Mr. SMITH and Mr. WILSON acquired F. C. THOMPSON’s third interest in the two papers in 1904, and about two years later Mr. SMITH sold his half interest in the papers to Mr. WILSON, who combined them on July 15, 1906, with the Daily and Weekly Gazette, under the firm name of Perkins & Wilson, publishers of the hyphenated papers as still appearing.
