Voice anniversary marks 131 years of headlines and deadlines
The St. Bernard Voice proudly celebrated 131 years on Monday, Jan. 11.
At 19-years-old, William F. Roy Sr., took a bold step forward in filling the opening created after his employer, the St. Bernard Progress, went out of business in December 1889. He transitioned from a typesetter who worked six days a week with 12-hour shifts to newspaper owner and publisher on Jan. 11, 1890.
Establishing the Voice's Latin slogan, "Dum Vivimus Vivamus, Labore et Honore," which means "While we live, let us live for work and honor;" Roy, his son Edwin Main Sr., and grandson, E.M. Jr., dedicated themselves to more than a century-long pursuit of journalistic excellence by providing quality news and event coverage in St. Bernard Parish.
