WHO'S WHO

 

The majority of newspaper articles have numerous surnames in each article.  Or, newspapers used 'Community Columns' such as 'Local Glances' to cover a whole neighborhood, in which the comings and goings of persons were written.  "Correspondents" were used - a person who lived in that section or neighborhood, who would collect interesting pieces of information from persons living in that area, and then deliver these one-or two-sentence items to the newspaper office.  These appeared on a monthly basis, until the paper became a weekly, then a daily.

People enjoyed seeing their own name in print (usually), and it helped sell a few more newspapers if the family could afford it.  Interestingly, for the very early newspapers especially, it is unlikely that many citizens even knew their name was in the paper until much later, if ever.

Community Items continue in today's newspapers.
