Happy Birthday to us!

The Telegraph Herald turned 170 years old last week. We trace our lineage to the inaugural issue of the weekly DuBuque Visitor, first published May 11, 1836. Multiple mergers and acquisitions later, the Telegraph Herald remains in operation publishing seven mornings a week, operating a Web site and producing several ancillary publications. The Telegraph Herald was created by the merger of the Dubuque Telegraph and (you guessed it) the Dubuque Herald in 1901.

Why didn't we throw a party?

Just mark your calendars for May 11, 2011 -- our 175th!

I'd love to be there. The TH was, and is, a good friend to me.
