The Des Moines Tribune was a daily afternoon newspaper published in Des Moines, Iowa. It was founded in 1906[2] and purchased in 1908[1] by the Cowles family, which owned the Des Moines Register. The newspapers shared production and business operations, but maintained separate editorial staffs which often behaved as rivals and competitors.[3] The newspaper ceased publication in 1982.[4]
