Miami Herald prepares to write the next chapter

 The Miami Herald is in the midst of moving out of the building at One Herald Plaza - its home for half a century - and into a new building in Doral.

I'm told the move will happen over three weekends -- with various departments moving starting mid- to late-April and ending in early May. Logistics are still in the works.

In the coming weeks, I'll attempt to highlight  key dates and events in the paper's history.

1903 - Sept. 15: Frank Stoneman publishes first edition of Miami Evening Record.

1907 - July 31: Last edition of Miami Evening Record (merged with Miami Morning News).

Dec. 2: First issue of Miami Morning News Record.

1910 - Aug. 22: Frank Shutts takes over failing Record.

Nov. 30: Last edition of Morning News Record.

Dec. 1: First edition of The Miami Herald, published by Shutts with financial backing of Henry Flagler; Frank Stoneman, editor.

The Daily Metropolis, Dec. 1, 1910.
