History Biographical: 

In 1874, the Reverend E. F. Wilson, founder and first principal of Shingwauk, was editor of the Algoma Missionary News. In 1878 an Anishinaabemowin supplement to the paper was published under the name of The Peace Pipe, "an Ojibway newspaper published monthly at the Shingwauk Home." The subscription rate for each individual paper was 35 cents yearly. The Peace Pipe was short lived, but Algoma Missionary News continued to be published on its own.

The paper was known successively as the Algoma Quarterly, then Algoma Missionary News and Shingwauk Journal, and finally Algoma Missionary News. At times during its career it carried advertising as well as news. Editors of the paper were clergymen, as follows: the Reverends E. F. Wilson, 1874-1889; G. H. Gaviller, 1889-1892; Charles Piercey, 1892-1918, Frederick W. Colloton, 1918-1944 and Frank F. Nock, 1944-1956. Publication ceased in 1956.

The Missionary News was replaced after an interval by the Algoma Anglican. In 1957 the Reverend J. E. Jordan was a leader in beginning the Algoma Anglican. It was expected that A. P. B. LePan would be editor, but he soon resigned, and the paper was produced by the combined efforts of James Meeks, of The Sudbury Star, and C. M. Fellman, of The North Bay Nugget.
