Frank Tyger   -  The Times Years

In addition to his editorial work, Frank also served as Promotion Manager at The Times.  For many people in the Trenton community, Frank Tyger was the face of the paper earning him the nickname "Mr. Times."

If you had a charitable cause, Frank would write about it in his Monday column.  If you wanted a representative from the Times at a local event, Frank would be there.  If you wanted a tour of the paper, Frank would conduct it.  Frank's work at the paper emphasized strong community involvement.

Following are photographs showing the diversity of activities Frank was involved in as Promotion Manager.
