Abstract

The first and primary objective of this study is to uncover and compile information about Hopp and the County Press. The second and secondary objective of the study is to point out characteristics of the county press and Hopp which seem to be typical of other early Dakota papers and editors. No attempt is made to reach any general conclusions which would be applicable to all papers in all parts of the United States. What was the Brookings area like before 1890? What did Hopp and the Press do for Brookings area development? What type of man was George W. Hopp? What type of newspaper was the County Press? These are the questions which this study attempts to answer.
