Machias Valley News Observer

The earlier of the two papers, the Union, was first published by George A. Parlin, a job printer in Machias, Maine. His grandson, Earle C. Parlin, would later take over the paper in the early 1900s. Grandfather Parlin was notable in a long line of Parlins in the newspaper business in Machias. Succeeding him as owner of the Union in 1899 was William R. Pattangall, chief justice of Maine as well as Union editor and owener, when young Earle Parlin, a Machias High School graduate in 1906, went to work for the judge on the Union. Source
