The Winters Participation Gallery shared a photo on Saturday, Aug. 1 of the latest Winters history mural being painted on the side of the John Rogers Building. The photo featured an image of Newt Wallace sitting at his typewriter creating a piece for his Express column. The image also featured the news press and listed out all of the Express Publishers beginning with Edwin C. Rust (Publisher from 1884-1896), to Newt’s son Charley Wallace (Publisher from 1983-2018), and included current Publisher Taylor Buley.
