Content Description

This collection contains manuscripts of journal newspapers written by Lorey Clifford Day from the age of 8 to 18 years old. The series of 45 newspapers are written and hand printed using his official name, L.C. Day, including over 415 pages of content. At the end of 1906, he announced the Christmas number as his final printing of the U.S. News. Starting in 1907, he started the "Once-In-a-While" publication, which appeared on Saturday Evenings but not regularly. There are also 13 page calendars included by his son Richard Lorey Day and other related drawings. Additionally, when L.C. Day was 77 years old, he created a manuscript summary of the newspaper journals of his father, Gilman Lee Day. Finally, there is a miscellaneous paper that includes the acceptance of L.C. Day's granddaughter's acceptance into a Press Club, records of a donation of land, and more.
