History[edit]

Examiner and Times Newspaper office, Warwick, circa 1901
Samuel Irwin, proprietor of the Warwick Examiner and Times, Warwick, 1901

Established circa 1864, the Warwick Examiner and Times was printed on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Also established in 1864, the Warwick Argus published on opposing days i.e. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Ultimately, in 1919, an opportunity to combine and publish daily was realized with the Examiner purchasing the Argus and the Warwick Daily News was formed.[2]

In 1968, the owners, the Dunn family, decided to amalgamate with a number of other newspaper owners to create the Provincial Newspapers (QLD) Ltd company.[3]

Digitisation[edit]

The paper has been digitised as part of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program of the National Library of Australia.[4][5]
