    History The Index-Journal has been owned by Greenwood families since it was founded on February 6, 1919. The paper’s original owner was Harry L. Watson, who was also editor and publisher for more than 50 years. The business began operations on Maxwell Avenue on the second floor above a movie theater. The printing press was on a dirt floor on the first level. When Watson died, his daughters inherited the paper, where they worked as writers. Longtime Greenwood residents especially remember Margaret, who often smoked a pipe while she typed her stories for the newspaper. In 1957, the Watson sisters wanted to sell the business, but insisted it be sold to Greenwood residents. The paper was bought by three men who had been employed by the newspaper for years: R. Frank Mundy, business manager; William W. Wilson, advertising director; and J. Ed Chaffin, editor. The new owners had a business arrangement which stated after the death of one, the survivors had the option of buying the shares of the deceased. Wilson died first, then Chaffin, and Frank Mundy became the sole owner and publisher in 1977 until his death in 1982. Mundy’s widow, Eleanor Metts Mundy, succeeded him as publisher, and their only child, Judith (Judi) Mundy Burns, was named president. After Mrs. Mundy’s death in 1998, Judi became president and publisher, the positions she holds today. Two of her daughters also work at the paper. St. Claire Burns Donaghy is a staff writer, Eleanor Mundy Burns Price is director of community relations, heads the newspaper in education program, and publishes the company’s parenting magazine. Alison Mundy Burns-Loper is a shareholder.
