TitleSC89 Jason Rogers Papers Finding Aid
AbstractJason Rogers was born in New York City in 1868. He dropped out of grammar school and worked his way up in the journalism trade to become an expert in newspaper publishing and advertising. He was the author of several books on newspaper building and, after leaving the "New York Globe" in 1923, started his own business in newspaper advising. Walter Dickey, publisher of the "Kansas City Journal-Post," hired him in 1926 to help build up the newspapers' position versus their rival the "Kansas City Star."

This small collection includes correspondence and supporting materials such as clippings, speeches, statistics, and advertisements which date from the period of Rogers' association with the "Kansas City Journal-Post." The collection provides valuable insights into the newspaper publishing industry in the 1920s, in particular the rivalry between the Journal-Post and Kansas City Star.
