1904 Bethel News Extra Illustrated Edition


The "Extra Illustrated Edition" of The Bethel News, published on January 6, 1904, differs from the other special editions produced by Bethel newspapers in that it did not accompany a community celebration. The content, however, is much in line with the other papers, combining written sketches of town life and institutions, biographies of business people, and photographs. Combined with a sense of local history, one finds civic pride and a degree of promotionalism. The Edition was planned in response to a News editorial stressing the need to attract money and business to Bethel. A local minister, Charles Gleason, wrote the lead article with other contributions from John P. True and Annie Frye.
