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 1976.

Please peruse these searchable pages at your leisure. If you were in Dover during these years, you will perhaps find your name and live those days again. Or look for people you know or read Dover's history in Carl Bryant's well-written articles.

If you would like to have your own copy to use without accessing the internet, the complete set of issues is available for a $50 donation to the Dover Historical Society.

Thank you for visiting.
