About

The Butte Miner began as a tri-weekly on June 1, 1876, under the guidance of James H. Mills Harry Kessler, and Horace T. Brown.  A Civil War veteran, Mills arrived in Montana in 1866 and soon became Secretary of the Territory, Adjutant General, and the father of the Montana Press Association.  Kessler owned the Clear Grit Mine in Butte and had spent nine years as a lithographer in Philadelphia prior to immigrating to Montana.  Horace Brown, an Ohio newspaperman, moved to Virginia City, Montana, in 1867, and one year later came to work on the Helena Herald.
