The Dover Reporter
The Dover Reporter was a locally published
newspaper which recorded the history of Dover and contemporary
events in the period September 1965 through June 1969; and
August 1974 through February 1976.
It was a business - but
run locally by locals. It grew from a mimeographed newsletter
in the fall of 1965 to a full newspaper, published weekly,
later that year.
The editor, publisher and
writer was Carl Bryant. He wrote an historical article
for each issue, the first written history of Dover since
Frank Smith's histories in the early years of the 20th Century.
Personal issues caused the newspaper to cease
publication in June 1969, but it was started again in August
1974. It finally ceased publication forever in February
