Watertown Daily Times owner Stephanie Brockway took over part ownership of the newspaper in New York's north country after the death of her husband, Henry Brockway, in 1903.

During her time, she saw the paper through a pressroom strike and the purchase of Watertown Daily Standard. While she was remembered fondly after her death, she is less discussed by history. Today, Christina Knott, Dennis O'Brien and Kelly Burdick take a lot at her life and the people around her who helped shape who she became.
