York County student poses questions about YDR and its long, eventful past

A York County High School student – a particularly inquisitive young scholar from Central York High – recently wrote with a long list of questions about the York Daily Record/Sunday News.

We often receive such requests. People are fascinated with what we do and why we do it.

Here are some of my responses:

– YDR history.
– Chronology of YDR’s history and brief history of digital history.
– Controversy over YDR predecessor’s founding date.
– Biography of J.W. Gitt, longtime owner.
– Most famous former staff member, Robert Maynard.
– Two Pulitzer Prize winners after they left YDR or its predecessor.
– Awards YDR has won in past 20 years.
