A Century of Front-Page News Coverage from Columbia County
Newspapers have been published in Columbia County since the 1820s, one decade after its founding in 1813. As the only initial sources for its citizens of national news and best providers of coverage for local events, these newspapers comprise an indispensable record of the history of the area.
The newspapers featured in the exhibit are the Columbia County Republican, Bloomsburg Daily, Berwick Enterprise, and Morning Press, dating from 1864-1970. The events covered locally include the trial for a Civil War conspirator, a Bloomsburg State Normal School baseball game, the Sesquicentennial Celebration of 1952, and the Bloomsburg Fair. National events featured are the end of World War II, the beginning of the Korean War, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the first landing of men on the moon.
The display is currently installed in the flat cases on the third floor of the Andruss Library. The exhibit will be on display until October 30, 2015.
