Mature Content: No

With: Sarah Thornton-Carlton
Location: Kalispell Union Office
When: August 1876

Sarah looked at the front of the building where the Kalispell Union was located.  She had made up her mind to try her luck here first.  Well, to be honest, it was the only place to try, there were no other writing establishments in town.

 

Having decided to leave the Thornton ranch had been easy.  She had lived there since her arrival in town at the end of last year and had taken on the job of looking after the children of her cousin Chance.  Now, that Shade had found another governess for the children, it was time to leave.  Income wasn't a problem as she still had her savings as well as a job writing articles for some eastern ladies' magazines but she felt the need to do something.  A life of idle wasn't for her.

 

There was no clue on how the owner and editor of the newspaper would take her offer.  She had meet him only a few times, but she was prepared to work for free if that was what it took to get a position.

 

Going up the front door, she opened it and walked in.

Phinn was setting type, Tommy Lane, his printers devil and all around helper was in school where he belonged, and where Phinn insisted he be.  He enjoyed fishing out the letters as he set up the page. It was a slow process, but his heart was set on the new Linotype type setting machine which would, of course, speed up matters much like the type writer had in '68, he had used them, became proficient at it, but never owned one.

 

Just as he finished the column the door opened and he looked away from the type case to see a woman entering. He stood, wiping his hands on his printers apron and stepping away from the job at hand.

 

"Good morning, what can I do for you?" He asked, smiling at the woman and her striking good looks as well as her style which spoke of big city life. He knew he had seen her before, but for the moment, could not remember when or where.

Sarah stepped up to the counter, "Good morning, Mr. McVay.  I don't know if remember me or not but my name is Sarah Thornton-Carlton."

 

She held her hand and as she waited for his response, she tried to work out what sort of man he was.

 

However, she didn't have much before she got a response.  Not one to dilly-dally, she spoke again, "I don't know how to say this, so I'll just come right out...I was wondering if you have ever entertained the idea of hiring a woman as a reporter for your newspaper?"

Sarah stepped up to the counter, "Good morning, Mr. McVay.  I don't know if remember me or not but my name is Sarah Thornton-Carlton."

 

"I do, it has been some time Miss Thornton-Carlton, but yes, I remember you." Phinn said with a smile.

 

She held her hand and as she waited for his response, she tried to work out what sort of man he was.

 

He shook her hand  and asked pleasantly, "And how might I help you?" Perhaps a printing job for the Lost Lake Ranch, or the Thorton's themselves.

 

However, she didn't have much before she got a response.  Not one to dilly-dally, she spoke again, "I don't know how to say this, so I'll just come right out...I was wondering if you have ever entertained the idea of hiring a woman as a reporter for your newspaper?"

 

"Well, I'd say that you said that well enough, Ma'am." He responded. "Now, some out here might say that they'd never heard of such a thing as a woman reporter, that would be because they were unaware of Anne Newport Royall, the first female journalist in the United States, the first woman to interview a president, be a publisher and editor for Paul Pry, the 30's and The Huntress from 1836 to 18 54 in Washington, D.C., had the pleasure of meeting her once."

 

He grinned, "Now as for a reporter, well, women worked as publishers, printers, typesetters, journalists, and carved wooden engravings for illustrations. I'm sure you'll agree that journalists are reporters, however, Kalispell is small, not much news to cover, but yes, I could use your expertise and I could pay you, say eight dollars a week, to begin." The offer would make things tight for McVay, but he hoped that with her involvement the subscription and advertising would increase, and together, they would earn more money.

Sarah smiled.  This was easier than she thought it was going to be.  The fact that he seemed eager to have her work for him came as a surprise.  She had half-expected the man to object or say something about a woman's place was in the home.

 

"Thank you, Mr. McVay for being open to my offer of work. I hope your faith in my abilities will be both rewarding to you and your readers."

 

She looked around the office for a moment, before going on, "I suppose we'd better work out the particulars in regards to my employment and what exactly would like me to write about."

"Write? Madam, you are the reporter, write the news of the area, write what interests you, let us find out together what the people want from this paper." He said. "As a matter of fact, I am headed over to a pugilistic event at Simkins Barn, so perhaps we should get started or we'll miss it." He said.

 

"Your impression of the event I believe will be widely read by the women of Kalispell, and a grand beginning of your employment at the Union. He added, "Whatta you say, Miss Thornton-Carlton?" He smiled as he got to his feet. "This is supposed to be quite the event, I'm told. They have bragged that folks will be coming from miles around for the entertainment." He slipped on his coat, took up his hat and opened the door. "After you."
