The name changed again to The Howard Gazette just prior to the American Civil War. In 1869, the Howard County Times was created with the merger of the Howard County Record, founded by John R. Brown. In 1882, Edwin Warfield, (1848-1920), later Governor of Maryland at the turn of the 19th Century (and future banker and founder/publisher of The Daily Record, a legal/business/finance newspaper (published Monday–Friday) in Baltimore purchased the paper while running for office.
