In 1839 the American Board of Foreign Missions brought back from Hawaii the printing outfit that had been sent there in 1821 (see our post for Feb. 22: "Hawaii's first newspapers...") and transferred it to Idaho. In 1862 in Lewiston, named after explorer Meriwether Lewis, Idaho's first newspaper, the "Golden Age", was established by A. S. Gould who hasd previous printing exerience in California and Oregon. The "Golden Age" was discontinued in 1865 when the printing press was moved to Leesburg. In 1867 the "Mining News" was established but the printer was able to keep it going for only eight months. The first newspaper in southern Idaho (3nd in the territory), the "Boise News" was started on Sept. 29, 1863 at Idaho City, and the fourth newspaper, the "Idaho Tri-Weekly Statesman" began printing on July 26, 1864 in Boise.
