The Daily Mail was founded in 1914 by former Alaska Gov. Walter Clark and remained the property of his heirs until 1987, when Thomson Newspapers purchased it.

Then, in May 2004, MediaNews sold its economic interest in Charleston Newspapers to the Daily Gazette Company, the owners of the morning newspaper.

The Daily Mail has won awards in many fields. J.D. Maurice, its editor of many years until his retirement in 1978, won the Sigma Delta Chi award for editorial writing in 1958 and the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished editorial writing in 1975.


The newspaper's motto, as chosen by Gov. Clark, is "Without, or With, Offence to Friends or Foes, I Sketch Your World Exactly as It Goes."
