The Roundup Record was first published on April 3, 1908 by Alfred W. Eiselein, editor. The founding of the local newspaper coincided with the founding of the town of Roundup along the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway on the Musselshell River. The Number 2 Mine at Klein provided much of the coal for the Milwaukee steam locomotives; coal mining, ranching, farming and other businesses were the primary industries in the area. A different paper, The Roundup Tribune, was published from 1910-1929 by Eiselein’s brother-in-law, C.V. Woodard; the two publishers were married to sisters. The Record merged with the Tribune in January 1930 and became the Roundup Record-Tribune. Members of the Eiselein Family still publish the newspaper under the name Roundup Record-Tribune & Winnett Times. The Roundup Record (1908-1913) has also been digitized and is available on Chronicling America.
