expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

The Mini Page is a weekly feature delivered through newspapers across the United States. The Mini Page covers a different topic each week and teaches readers through puzzles, recipes, activities, and pictures. First published in 1969 and targeted mainly at children, their parents, and educators, The Mini Page is syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, a division of Andrews McMeel Universal, in about 500 newspapers. In May 2007, The Mini Page was purchased by the Universal Press Syndicate, which had distributed it for 30 years.

Betty Debnam Hunt, a white woman from Raleigh, N.C., graduated from the University of North Carolina with a political science degree in 1952 and obtained her master's degree in education at Duke University in 1963. She worked as an advertising copywriter, alumni secretary, public relations professional, and second-grade teacher before creating The Mini Page in 1969. As creator of The Mini Page, she took on the roles of author, reporter, editor, artist, and salesperson. Debnam Hunt received the North Carolina Award and the Newspaper Association of America Lifetime Achievement Award and was inducted into the North Carolina Journalism Hall of Fame, the Newspapers in Education Hall of Fame, and the Association of Educational Publishers Hall of Fame.
