The Informer’s beginnings

The Informer made its first appearance in 1973 when a small group of MoWesters (Operating Board members: Wavell Cowan, Ned Lanthier, Frances Phelan, Harry Goldsmith, Marguerite King, Jamie Watt and Marg Swetland) accepted the responsibility to produce what, at that time, was called “The Citizens’ Viewspaper”. The Town agreed to subsidize the paper, as it still does today.
