What’s the history of the Palladium-Item?

The Palladium-Item is Richmond’s oldest business. The first issue of the Richmond Palladium, forerunner of the Palladium-Item and Sun Telegram, was printed by Nelson Boon, its founder, on Jan. 1, 1831. Boon’s grandfather, Squire Boon, was a brother of Daniel Boone, famous Kentucky frontiersman. Nelson Boon chose to drop the “e” in Boone. The Palladium-Item is the third oldest newspaper in Indiana in continuous publication. The two older papers are the Vincennes SunCommercial, 1804, and the Lafayette Courier & Journal, 1829. A number of consolidations have occurred since the first issue was printed on a hand press. In 1907, the Sun-Telegram, which was a combination of four newspapers between 1861 and 1897, was consolidated with the Richmond Palladium. The Richmond Item, founded in 1877 and published in the morning starting in October 1916, was acquired in 1929. The Palladium Publishing Corp. continued issuing the Richmond Palladium and the Richmond Item as two separate newspapers until 1939 when they were combined into the Palladium-Item, with afternoon and morning editions six days a week excluding Saturday. In September 1977, the morning and evening papers were combined into an all-evening paper and the newspaper started publishing seven days a week. In June 1976, the Palladium-Item became the 54th daily newspaper in the nationwide Gannett group. In August 1976, all departments except the press and mailroom operations moved from 19 N. Ninth St. to 1175 N. A St. Operations were combined at the North A Street location in August 1984. Printing of USA Today began Sept. 10, 1984. The Palladium-Item Website, www. pal-item.com, was launched in January 2001 and continues to grow

monthly. Page views are more than 2.5 million a month and unique visitors are more than 170,000 a month. The site changes at 7 a.m. daily and is updated about 20 times throughout the day with breaking news and updates. In addition to news and information, the online edition features blogs and forums, photo galleries, videos, events calendars, polls, opportunities for readers to submit their own news and photos and more. Online features include Party Crasher, Cops and Courts, Careerbuilder, cars.com, ShopLocal, Pal-Item Homes and Apartments.com. A mobile version, m.pal-item.com, can be delivered via cell phone. Other features and products are in production. In January 2009, the PalladiumItem’s production facilities were combined with those of The Indianapolis Star, also a Gannett publication. The Palladium-Item is printed each night on the Star’s presses and trucked to Richmond each morning for distribution to vendors and residential subscribers.

Why is the newspaper called the Palladium-Item?

“Palladium” refers to the Greek goddess, Pallas Athena, whose warlike nature was provoked by injustice and interference with constructive, peaceful living. Pallas Athena was the Goddess of Wisdom and considered a symbol of protection. The term “Palladium,” denoting the protection of the rights of people, is believed to have come from Greek history where theft of a statue of Pallas Athena from ancient Troy is said to have resulted in Troy’s destruction. There are several newspapers in the United States with “Palladium” in their names. Unfortunately, no one knows for sure how the name came to be applied to the Richmond enterprise.
