Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Clippings

Collection ID: 
SCRC 169
Collecting Area: 

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. There are approximately a half million clipping envelopes. Some of the files were converted to a microfiche format by the newspaper. Other files have been copied onto acid-free paper. Files are divided into separate alphabets for subjects and personal names. Clipping files can include obituaries but not death notices and dates range from 1920 through January 1982 when the Bulletin closed its doors.

An internal newspaper index for the Bulletin is available in the Special Collections Research Center for the period 1908-1975 in manuscript volumes and typed cards. However, it is recommended that researchers utilize the clippings files to search for topics and individuals.
