Happy Valentine’s Day!
As a Valentine’s gift, I added a new set of original articles about the strike of 1899. You’ll find them under the Newspaper Articles tab, on the page for the Morning Telegraph. Enjoy!
Happy New Year!
Newly added to the website today are articles from the Brooklyn Eagle. There aren’t very many—just five—but they offer a different perspective on the strike than the ones provided by Manhattan-based newspapers.
And since today is the day for resolutions, I resolve to post on the blog more frequently than last year. (Seventeen is the number to beat, and I already have three scheduled for later this year…) In the works are some book reviews, in addition to more song lyrics and random newspaper articles involving newsies. Is there anything else y’all would like to see on the blog in the future?
The website is now updated with several new articles regarding the newsboys’ strike, these from the New York Evening Telegram. As with any of the newspapers covering the strike, the Evening Telegram has a different perspective of the events that occurred. Especially if they could use the strike as an opportunity to toot their own horn. (One particular letter to the editor, in my opinion, seems to have been written by someone other than the purported author…) While the articles do not add anything new to the strike timeline, they do round out the events we’re all familiar with.
Newspaper articles from four newspapers—The New York Times, The Sun, The New York Daily Tribune, and The World—are now online!
The main page at Newspaper Articles lists all of the newspaper articles for each day of the strike, sorted by newspaper. If you prefer to view only the articles from one newspaper, simply go to that paper’s index.
More articles from other newspapers are in the works. Stay tuned!
