Did you know that the Southwest Collection has over 130,000
newspapers available among our digital collections? Many of our earliest
volumes date from the 1920s, such as this issue of The Memphis Democrat of Hall County, Texas, a small, quiet place,
whose newspaper first graced the local storefront on July 8, 1908. Its front page was always one of the
most matter-of-fact among our collections, eschewing numerous ads to focus on
the important events of the day. Such as why not to drink hair tonic and toilet
water (spoiler: 3 in 4 chance of dying).

Feel free to peruse the rest of this issue over here.
