The Seattle Union Record was a union-owned newspaper edited by Harry Ault. The paper was published weekly from February 20, 1900 to April 2, 1918 and was published daily from April 24, 1918 until it discontinued publication in 1928. In its own words, the newspaper was "Published for Principle and Not for Profit".
Harry Ault was instrumental in the temporary success of the Union Record. Prior to working as the editor of the Union Record Ault worked for various other newspaper organizations. As a child, he worked as a newsboy selling the Kentucky Post. At 11 he started the Amateur's Friend and was selling the Weekly People the next year. He would later publish The Young Socialist and at age 19 became the editor of the The Socialist. Nine years later, in 1912, he began to work as the editor of the Union Record which had a circulation of 3,000. Alt would bring that circulation to 80,000 at its peak.
