The arrangement, description, and preservation of 39 collections (comprising almost 800 cubic feet of personal papers and organizational records) documenting newspaper journalism in Chicago from the late 19th century through the 20th century.

The Newberry Library seeks NEH support to arrange, preserve, and describe to current standards thirty-nine of the most compelling, unknown, and underused collections in its Midwest Manuscript Collection. Comprising 781.1 cubic feet, these collections document over one hundred years of newspaper journalism in Chicago, the city's remarkable social, political, and cultural history, and its connections to the nation and the world. To ensure users full access, finding aids including collection-level catalog records and EAD descriptive inventories will be widely disseminated on the Internet and national bibliographic utilities.
