The "American Bulletin" Debuts (1950)

Sunday, October 30, 2022

Journalists Wallie Funk and John Webber owned the Anacortes American from 1950 to 1964. They published their first issue together on June 1, 1950. Early in their publishing career, the two fraternity brothers had a radical idea: expanding the American to add a four-day-a-week tabloid, "The American Bulletin." Journalistic peers called the move "insane" and spoke of Anacortes as "the boneyard of Washington state journalism." Despite all this, the Bulletin stayed in publication until 1962, when the Scripps League syndicate bought the Anacortes American operation.
