Old Newspapers Help Fill Gap in Monrovia History



According to the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group, it recently received two years of old Monrovia newspapers, which it has turned over to the Monrovia Public Library to be digitized. The library's collection of newspapers was unfortunately missing papers from 1891 to 1907, and the new gift fills part of that gap, from April 2, 1891 to December 22, 1892. The papers were from Dorothy Waterman, of Oregon, whose stepfather, John Russell Read, had been in the newspaper business.
