The Wendell Post collection contains nearly every issue of a community newspaper for a small, rural New England town. Beginning in April 1977 with volume 1, number 2 (there was no number 1), the Postpublished continuously for 24 years, covering local events from a local perspective. Most issues include reports on town meetings and elections, the schools, and public works, but the Postalso carried news of the stuff of daily life such as births and deaths, high school graduations, anniversaries and Old Home Day, profiles of town residents and town history, and the crime report.
