San Diego: Dawn Media, 1979-1992. Newspaper. 176 issue broken run of the folded tabloid newspaper, illustrations, photos, ads, news stories, events, reviews, mostly very good with some toning, wear and fold creases, newsprint.
Donald Hauck founded Dawn Media and co-founded and published Update as well as distributing Drummer and The Advocate for Southern California. He committed suicide in 1992. Dawn Media, Hauck and Update were major influences in the southern California LGBT community for 27 years.
Originally a weekly it switched to biweekly in 1989. This run is fairly strong with few missing issues between issue # 28 and #142 but then most of the second half of the run skips all even-numbered issues and some odd but there are absolutely no even numbered issues after number 160.
