Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin was founded in 1847 and its final issue was published January 29, 1982. Shortly after the paper closed, Temple University acquired a majority of its newspaper clippings and photograph library The library was used as an internal information source for reporters and editors seeking background knowledge on a particular person or topic. Both the clippings and photographs from the Bulletin are a valuable resource for research on the Philadelphia region.  

Description of Collection

The bulk of the clippings in this collection are primarily from the Evening Bulletin with some articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, Philadelphia Record, Public Ledger and North American as well as a few articles from New York papers. Clippings range from 1900 through January 1982 when the Bulletin closed.

Researchers may also want to request materials from the George D. McDowell Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Mounted Clippings Collection (SCRC 169C), the George D. McDowell Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Clippings Microfiche (SCRC 169D), and the George D. McDowell Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Byline Clippings Collection (SCRC 169E).

The addition of “George D. McDowell” to the collection name in no way implies that he was the creator.  Rather he was one of scores of staff who worked in the library, and his family supplied a naming gift to honor him and support work on preservation of the collection.

Organization and Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by subject, then followed by oversized clippings.
