I have setup a memorial at Find A Grave with lots of photos of Levi A DUNLAP. He was editor of 'The Meridian Tribune' where we get great articles from the past. He and his wife, Mary Jane, were my dad's Aunt and Uncle. - Hugh

FROM HIS OBITUARY
"The DUNLAP family moved to Meridian in December 1896, and in 1898 Levi A. borrowed $50 with which he instigated the purchase of "The People's Tribune" , a Populist newspaper. He changed it to the Democratic "The Meridian Tribune" which he owned and edited continuously for 50 years until his retirement on January 1, 1956. The Tribune is still in business in its 76th year (1974). At various times during his operation of the Tribune plant he was assisted by his brothers, Edwin and Teel, and his sister, Minnie. Levi A. gained many honors and recognitions during his printer-publisher days, having produced one of the best small town weekly's in Texas and having operated a very efficient job printing and publishing plant patronized throughout the state."
