- The Daytona (FL) Gazette-News [LCCN sn93059208] was variously referred to as the Daytona Gazette-News and the Ormond (FL) Gazette-News. The newspaper began publishing in 1901 and ceased publication in 1922. The Daytona Gazette-News was preceded by the Gazette-News [LCCN sn95047378], which published until January 26, 1901. Daytona Gazette-News reporting traces the history of traffic up and down the Florida coast. The history of racing in Daytona is also well documented, beginning with automobile races along the beach, followed by more organized races inland on oyster shell and later asphalt speedways. Researchers can find references to the doings of Florida transportation and tourism pioneer, Henry Flagler at the turn of the 20th century. Other reports document the use of automobiles for stumping the state politically. The St. Johns & Halifax River Railway, later renamed the Florida East Coast Railway, arrived in Daytona (FL), present day Daytona Beach (FL), in 1886, a decade after the city had been incorporated in 1876. Daytona was a new American city for the new American Century. With the railway's arrival, Daytona's proximity to the ocean made it a tourist destination. Ormond (FL), present day Ormond Beach (FL), was incorporated in 1880, four years after Daytona was incorporated. Poynter Institute's Florida Newspaper Chronology cites publication starting in 1889 and ending in 1922.--E. Kesse, University of Florida Digital Library Center.

The Gazette-News and The Daytona Gazette-News
The Gazette-News of Daytona began publication in the 1890s and continued until January 26, 1901. On that date, it was succeeded by the Daytona Gazette-News, also known as the Ormond Gazette-News. This successor newspaper ceased publication in about 1922.
Both papers covered news of traffic up and down the Florida coast. The St. Johns and Halifax River Railway, later renamed the Florida East Coast Railway, reached Daytona--present-day Daytona Beach--in 1886, a decade after the city had been incorporated. Daytona proved to be a new American city for the new American Century. With the railway’s arrival, Daytona’s proximity to the ocean made it a premier tourist destination. The history of racing in Daytona is also well documented, beginning with car races along the beach, followed by more organized races inland on oyster shell and later asphalt speedways. The newspapers also reported on the use of automobiles for stumping the state politically. Finally, researchers can find references to the activities of Florida transportation and tourism pioneer, Henry Flagler.
