Beautifully engraved certificate from the Kansas City Times Newspaper Company issued in 1890. This historic document has an ornate border around it with a vignette of the company's logo. It shows signs of wear and has had minor tape repair. This item is hand signed by the Company’s President (M. Munford) and Secretary (Chas. E. Hasbrook)and is over 111 years old. This is the only certificate we have seen from this company. In 1901, William Rockhill Nelson bought the Kansas City Times, a Democratic-leaning daily 13 years older than The Star. His aim is to acquire its morning Associated Press wire service franchise. Nelson changes the nameplate to declare it The Morning Kansas City Star, and for decades it is indistinguishable typographically from the afternoon Star. Nelson calls his new empire "the 24-hour Star." "Successive staffs of writers and editors will be constantly in position to give the readers the news at the earliest moment." That plan continues until the papers become one morning daily in 1990.
