The Mail Tribune was the first Oregon newspaper to win a Pulitzer Prize, awarded for meritorious public service after Editor Robert Ruhl stood up to a gang of unscrupulous politicians in 1934. The Mail Tribune traces its roots back to 1906, when the Medford Mail published in the mornings and the Medford Tribune published in the afternoon. The two papers merged on Nov. 1, 1909, under Editor George Putnam, creating the 'largest printing and publishing establishment in Southern Oregon.' The new Medford Mail Tribune came out Monday through Friday evenings with a Sunday morning edition.
