Clarence “Bud” Pelaghi

Clarence “Bud” Pelaghi, the executive editor of The Derrick in 1971, was in charge of the newspaper’s centennial edition. Here is a photo of Pelaghi taken from that edition.

The first section of The Derrick’s Aug. 14, 1971, centennial edition offered a glimpse into the happenings of the times both here and elsewhere.

The newspaper was still using its front page for Associated Press news from around the nation and the world, and on that day the top story involved Alabama Gov. George Wallace, who defied federal courts and ordered the reopening of a black school that had been closed by a federal court to hasten integration.
