PAUL S. JUNKIN is president of the Fairfield Ledger Company, publishers of
the Daily Ledger at Fairfield. In Jefferson County the Ledger has been a
power in the newspaper field since pioneer times, and the Ledger is also almost
unique in the history of Iowa journalism from the fact that it has been owned
and published by one family continuously for eighty years. In that time
there has been four representatives of the family who have had the chief
responsibilities of the publication. Mr. Junkin's father carried the paper on for
many years, and before Mr. Paul Junkin took charge one of his brothers was head
of the business and also a nephew.
Paul S. Junkin was born at Fairfield, August 12, 1867. He grew up and
attended school there, and completed his education in Parsons College, attending
the preparatory academy for three years and then taking the full four years'
collegiate course. He was graduated in 1889. During his college career he
was pursuing a practical vocational course, learning the newspaper business
under his father and brother, then owners and editors of the Ledger. Mr. Paul
Junkin then launched out into a newspaper career for himself, purchasing and
for one year conducting the Orange City Harald. In 1900 he went to Corning as
owner and editor of the Union Republican. Later he was editor and owner of
the Creston Daily Advertiser and also had interests in the Bedford
Times-Republican, Chariton Harald-Patriot, Albia Republican and Fort Madison Daily
Democrat. Upon the reorganization of the Iowa Press Association Mr. Junkin was
honored with election as its first president, and served two terms in that
Mr. Junkin left the newspaper field in 1919 to engage in manufacturing at
Fort Madison, Iowa, and later was appointed and served as receiver for the
Perfection Tire and Rubber Company. Then, in 1924, he returned to Fairfield and
acquired the controlling interest in the Fairfield Ledger. July 1, 1930, he
became postmaster of Fairfield, being the first occupant of the fine new
Postoffice Building, and disposing of a controlling interest in the Ledger to his
nephew, Don McGiffin.
