Anacortes History

  1. The "American Bulletin" Debuts (1950)

    October 30, 2019, All Day @ Anacortes American

    Journalists Wallie Funk and John Webber owned the Anacortes American from 1950-1964. They would publish their first issue together on June 1, 1950. Early on in their publishing career, the two fraternity brothers had a radical idea: a four-day-a-week tabloid known as, "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 would stay in constant publication until 1962 when the Anacortes American operation was bought by The Skagit Valley Herald.
