The New York Tribune

The New York Tribune may have been the most prolific in their coverage of the newsies, both within New York City and elsewhere, during the strike. They even included a two-page article concerning “New York Newsies” in a Sunday illustrated supplement, complete with photographs of a few of the newsboys and newswomen.
