Dates of existence


The Jasper Booster started as a two page advertising flyer. Two issues were printed in 1963. The business was then bought by Ray and Myrna Matthews. They purchased an old Gestetner printing machine and started producing the Jasper Booster in their basement. They published the paper for the next two and one half years building it up from a two-page flyer to a full news and advertising paper having as many as 26 pages. In September 1965 the Jasper Booster was sold to Fred Donovan. He published it for many years. The Jasper Booster is now owned by Bowes publishers, a subsiduary of Sun Media Corporation.
