At different times these newspapers were in print, some during the same time, Superior Sun,  Superior Daily Journal, Superior Weekly Journal and the Superior Express.  The Superior Express was started in January 1900 and is still in print today.  We have microfilm of these newspapers from Feb 28, 1888 to present.
