Dates

  • Existence: d. 1932

In 1892, Charles H. Thorpe purchased stock in the Courier Publishing Company of Detroit, Michigan. In 1900, Thorpe purchased a photographic outfit in Lowell, Massachusetts to run with his son Roy who had aapprenticed to a similar operation for over a year. In 1903, Thorpe and his wife moved to Littleton, New Hampshire where he bought the "White Mountain Republic Journal" from William Bridges. Between 1905 and 1913, Thorpe and the paper were plagued with financial, legal and personal difficulties. However, between 1911 and 1913, the paper seemed to have suffered its most serious bout of financial difficulties with mounting debts and imminent foreclosures. In response, Thorpe sold it to F.H. English and he and his wife moved back to New York. Thorpe died in 1932.
