The Oregon Journal debuted on May 10, 1902, founded by C. S. Jackson as a campaign paper, and titled the Portland Evening Journal. It was initially set up using two rented Linotypes. The paper struggled from the beginning, and wouldn't show a profit for over 50 years.

It did, however, contribute much to the history of Oregon, by hiring Fred Lockley. He came to the paper from the Capital Journal, and would write a column about early Oregon pioneers.
