The Northeastern progress. September 18, 1878
Malcolm Stafford founded Harmony Grove’s first newspaper in 1875 as the Northeast Georgia Progress. The paper’s title became the Northeastern Progress in 1878. Stafford only worked on the paper independently for a year; in 1876, Stafford brought on W. A. Shackelford as printer who stayed until 1881 when he became owner of the Oglethorpe Echo. Under the banner “[to] Serve God and the People, and make an Honest Living,” the four-page Democratic Northeastern Progress was delivered every Wednesday for those who paid its $1.50 per annum fee. The paper ceased printing in 1881.
