    John D. Van Eaton, another Southern Californian, was the first editor of the local newspaper, the Chandler Arizonan.  The paper began publication four days after land sales day, and it helped promote the fledgling town.  The Arizonan was delivered by train to cities across the nation as an advertisement for the town.  Van Eaton is pictured here in front of his tent house, which he let readers know, was always open.
