On the newspaper's 21st anniversary in 1907, Bill Barlow's Budget of Douglas, Wyo., declared itself “Fair, Faithful and Fearless.” Click the links below for access to a new series of WyoHistory.org articles on Wyoming newspapers and the people — always reaching for the Budget's ideals — who made them what they were. For their generous support, we thank the Wyoming Humanities Council and the Pulitzer Prizes Centennial Campfires Initiative, a joint venture of the Pulitzer Prizes Board and the Federation of State Humanities Councils in celebration of the 2016 centennial of the prizes.
