History[edit] In 1874, the Columbus Enquirer, until then a weekly publication, merged with Columbus's first daily newspaper, the Daily Sun, to form the Columbus Enquirer-Sun.[7] The paper was published under this name for many years before eventually dropping the hyphen and reverting to the name Columbus Enquirer. The paper was purchased by R. W. Page in 1930.[2] For many years the morning Columbus Enquirer and the afternoon Columbus Ledger, a paper founded in 1886, and also owned by R. W. Page, published a combined Sunday paper known as the Sunday Ledger-Enquirer. Knight Newspapers acquired the company in 1973, and in 1988 the papers merged the daily edition as well, adopting the name Columbus Ledger-Enquirer.[2] Knight Ridder was acquired by The McClatchy Company in 2006.[8] 1926 Pulitzer Prize[edit] The Columbus Enquirer-Sun was awarded the 1926 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service "for the service which it rendered in its brave and energetic fight against the Ku Klux Klan; against the enactment of a law barring the teaching of evolution; against dishonest and incompetent public officials and for justice to the Negro and against lynching."[5] 1955 Pulitzer Prize[edit] The Columbus Ledger and Sunday Ledger-Enquirer were awarded the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for their "complete news coverage and fearless editorial attack on widespread corruption in neighboring Phenix City, Alabama which were effective in destroying a corrupt and racket-ridden city government. The newspaper exhibited an early awareness of the evils of lax law enforcement before the situation in Phenix City erupted into murder. It covered the whole unfolding story of the final prosecution of the wrong-doers with skill, perception, force and courage."[6]
