The Salinas Californian is the descendant of The Salinas Index, first published March 31, 1871. Nobel laureate John Steinbeck, a Salinas native, first was published in the Salinas Index sometime before 1920. During World War II, The Salinas Index and The Salinas Record joined forces as a result of newsprint shortages. The combined publication was renamed The Salinas Californian in honor of California's first newspaper, The Californian, published in 1848 in Monterey. Gannett purchased Salinas Newspapers Inc. and The Salinas Californian from Speidel Newspapers in 1977. The Salinas Californian's online edition was launched September 23, 2000
