Carrying on the Iversons’ legacy | In Our Opinion

  • Feb 8, 2015 at 7:00AM

The North Kitsap Herald is entering its 114th year of publishing. The Herald was founded in 1901 by Peter and Josephine Iverson shortly after they arrived here from Norway via the Midwest. We’re proud of their groundbreaking legacy of leadership — Peter served as the second mayor of Poulsbo and as state senator from 1913-18; Josephine was a journalist at a time when newsrooms were largely the domain of men. One hundred fourteen years later, we strive to carry on the Iversons’ legacy. Like them, we work to produce a Herald that is a catalyst for change, a reflection of the community it serves. (And, we’re proud that the glass ceiling in our publisher’s office was shattered long ago).
