The Daily Journal of Commerce was founded in 1872.[2] It merged with Sunday Welcome (a competing public notice newspaper in Portland) at some point during the 1930s or 1940s[4], and was purchased by Dolan Media Company of Minneapolis in 1997.[4] Dolan Media Company changed its name to The Dolan Company in 2010.[5]

"The Sunday Welcome partnership with DJC ... dates back more than 60 years when two competing Portland public notice newspapers, Sunday Welcome and the Daily Journal of Commerce, agreed to merge operations. The Caplan family shut down its Sunday Welcome title, and the Smith family, which then owned DJC, published the sole surviving paper. The Caplans handled all public notice sales duties, the Smiths published the ads, and the two families split the public notice revenues....The Dolan Company bought the DJC from the Smiths in 1997."
