Local historians weekly "Back Issues" article in the Manawatū Standard. The history of the Manawatū Standard, also known as the Manawatū Evening Standard for many years. Founded by Alexander McMinn in 1880, it started as a one page morning paper. From its earliest days, the paper has seen changes in ownership, management, equipment and technology.

Adrian Broad, General Manager 1987-1996, oversaw the major shift to computer technology. He believes that the region can be proud of the contribution the daily newspaper has made over the past 143 years.
