The Lansford Reporter was founded during the Reconstruction era in 1868. Samuel Langhorn Clemens was the Reporter’s first unofficial editor, before moving on to works of fiction. The main office in Lansford was a hub for Adlai E. Stevenson’s presidential campaign. It has been visited by Franklin D. Roosevelt, Emma Goldman, Richard Burton, and Tom Wolfe.
Currently the pioneer paper runs on a small staff under the leadership of editor-in-chief Max Rosenstein.
The Reporter also employs writer Jonah Smith-Bartlett, native of Oakland, California, and author of “Goodnight Eileen, Goodnight Woody” (published by Gemini Magazine). He can be reached at email@example.com.
