Scope and Content

Due to the number of newspapers involved and taking into account their oversized and fragile condition, it was deemed appropriate to organize these newspapers into a separate collection. The newspapers are arranged first alphabetically by newspaper's name and then, chronologically.

It is interesting to note that some newspapers in this collection were published prior to Englewood's annexation to Chicago in 1889. This accounts for the several different names used to describe the Englewood area.
