The growth of the Bangor Daily News since its merger with the Whig and Courier is one of the outstanding stories of the newspaper business.
It started when the late J. Norman Towle and Edward H. Blake of Bangor acquired control of the newspaper in 1895. Upon the death of Mr. Blake, Mr. Towle became sole owner. The paper has remained in that family ever since.
Under the influence of Mr. Towle the paper increased its circulation by 1932, from 2,200 to 23,760. When Mr. Towle's health failed in 1929, a son-in-law, Fred D. Jordan, assumed general direction of the paper.
Publication estimated to be between 1963 to 1965.
