SAN ANTONIO STAATS-ZEITUNG. The San Antonio Staats-Zeitung, a weekly German-language newspaper, succeeded the San Antonio Zeitung in May 1856, when Gustav Schleicher purchased that paper and renamed it. The paper was edited by H. F. Oswald, his brother Theodor, and Gustav Schleicher in 1859 and Theodor R. Hertzberg and R. Finck in 1860. Publication ceased in 1861.

A weekly paper known as the Texas Staats-Zeitung was published from 1890 until some time after 1900 by the Texas Staats-Zeitung Publishing Company.
