Daily Courier newspaper
This collection contains nine issues of an amateur newspaper created by two brothers, Harold and Arthur Rowley, ages fifteen and eleven, from Springfield, Massachusetts. They were the children of H.C. Rowley, head of the G & C Merriam Company, a well-known publishing and bookselling business. The newspapers are one page printed broadsides using a late 19th century mimeograph process. The brothers hand wrote these newspapers and likely printed them using their father's equipment. The newspapers include information on their home (Wyndhurst), its visitors, personals, facts on random topics, lost and found, profiles of famous historical figures, scripture alphabet, and advertisements for employees of G & C Merriam Company.
