The Southern Conservative
Last Updated: 2021-06-11
The Southern Conservative ("to plead for a return of Constitutional Government") was a right-wing newspaper published from 1950 to 1962. The publication was edited and owned by Ida Darden of Fort Worth, Texas, and financed largely by such Texas oilmen as George W. Armstrong and Arch Rowan. It targeted perceived Communist and Socialist influences in government.
The original materials were loaned by the Houston Metropolitan Research Center for digitization. They are available in the Ida M. Darden Collection.
