The Terril Record was the local newspaper during World War II. The publishers of the newspaper were Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Grow, whose son Pfc. Bernard Grow was captured by the Japanese after the fall of Bataan. He perished in a Japanese prison camp in 1944. The Grows spent the war years publishing extensive coverage of the area service personnel, notices of stationing, leaves, and wartime experiences. They were constant morale boosters for the community which included sending copies of the paper to “the boys” stationed around the world. They published snippets of news and letters which “the boys” sent home to The Terril Record and to families at home. Their publishing efforts have proved to be an extensive archive of Terril WW II history.
