▼ News-Register 1936 Flood Special Edition Handbill
Flood waters forced Wheeling News-Register staff to abandon equipment for higher ground at their offices on 1500 Main Street. The intrepid reporters used a small proof press to hand-set a crude but effective "flood supplement."
This example was donated to the library archives by Margaret Brennan.
OCPL appreciates the generosity and thoughtfulness of its many patrons in donating books, historical materials, and other library materials to the Library. Because of the overwhelming number of items donated, the limited amount of staff time to handle these donations, and limited space to house the donated materials, OCPL must restrict the donations accepted.
