CLEVELAND NEWSPAPER DIGEST
WPA Project 16492
In the ANNALS OF CLEVELAND, an attempt is made to answer a need
long felt by scholars; that of preserving and making readily accessible the
detailed record of a city's life and culture as contained in its newspapers.
The Annals are to be a set of at least one volume per year, covering the
years 1818 - 1935 and including an abstract of every newspaper story that
has recorded a local event or expressed a local opinion. Abstracts are filed
chronologically under subject headings alphabetically ordered. The abstracts
thus arranged are numbered consecutively. A chronological index brings to
gether by number all abstracts from the newspaper of a given date, and a
proper names and subject heading index offers an additional check.
The editors have sought to preserve and arrange in this series informa
tion that is nowhere else available and readily subject to control. To avoid
duplication they have concentrated their efforts on one major newspaper
file - the principal one for the period. This method of work leaves out of
account the diversities of opinion expressed by other newspapers.
