1931 Oxford County Citizen Special Edition


1931 Oxford County Citizen Special Edition


The Special Edition of The Oxford County Citizen published on August 3, 1931, commemorated the 150th anniversary of the Indian Raid, and consists of biographical sketches and photographs of many Bethel residents. Pearl Ashby Tibbetts, who coordinated the Special Edition, remembers the sometimes coercive efforts necessary to arrange for the spit 'n' polish photographs. As in previous Special Editions, there are photographs of businesses, local residences and churches. Sketches on various churches, hotels and businesses are interspersed with the profiles, and special pieces such as a 50-year prophesy and poems.

"A glimpse at other days" - a letter from George Twitchell, provides some historical notes. The 1931 edition sold for 25 cents.
