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.

In the

hope that the other files may be covered in respect of opinions there ex

pressed, the present volume is numbered Part I.

Part II, when and as pro

duced, will complete the presentation of opinion from other sources.

The file of the Cleveland LEADER has been used in the preparation of

this volume.

In 1874 the editor of the LEADER was Edwin C. Cowles.
