Santō Jiji

Santō Jiji / 山東時事 [The Santo Times], (Denver, CO)

Santō Jiji Masthead

The Santō Jiji was a daily newspaper established after the merger of the Denba Shinpō and the Kororado Shinbun in 1917, and it later became the Kakushū Jiji (Colorado Times). The publisher and editor was Kakutarō Nakagawa. Santō Jiji featured a wide range of articles from the world news to local tabloid news. The small size of the Japanese community in Colorado made publication of the Japanese newspaper financially challenging.

『傳馬新報』が『コロラド新聞』と合併、日刊紙『山東時事』が1917年に誕生し、後に『格州時事』になった。中川角太郎が発行人兼編集者だった。『山東時事』は世界情勢から地元のゴシップ記事まで幅広い記事を掲載した。コロラドの日本人人口が少ないことから、経営は困難だった。
