Group portrait of the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper staff.
The Tallahassee Democrat newspaper was founded in 1905 and located at 115 S. Adams St. from 1909-1953. In 1953, it moved to 100 E. Call St., and in 1968 to its present (2012) location at 277 N. Magnolia Drive.
Accompanying note: "This photo of the staff in 1940 includes longtime publisher Jack Tapers (balding man, top left). The second man to the right of Tapers, the dark-haired smiling fellow in a tie, is Malcolm Johnson, then head of the Associated Press' capital bureau whose office was at the Democrat. In 1954, Johnson became editor of the Democrat, a post he held until his retirement in 1978."
