The newspaper was established in 1884 by J. G. Murphy, the city's second mayor. Mr. Murphy sold the paper in the 1920s to Houston H. Harte. In 1924 it became one of the two original flagships of the Harte-Hanks newspaper chain. Scripps began operating the newspaper in 1997 after purchasing it from Harte-Hanks.
The Western novelist Elmer Kelton began his career in 1948 as the farm-and-ranch editor at the Standard-Times. Kelton friend and understudy Patrick Dearen, another western novelist and historian, is also a former Standard-Times staff writer.
