The Little Newspaper You Never Knew About
This week I am featuring a gem I stumbled upon in our archival collection. It is a newspaper called The Star and later The West Omaha Star which ran from 1933-1940 and featured news of the Walnut Hill Neighborhood area. Jimmie McGaffin tells his story in the final editorial as he suspends his paper:
You may note that he says the paper was a 12 year old boy’s dream and I believe he was actually 12 when he printed his first edition! Which, I am pleased to say, we also have. These tiny papers are 3” x 4.5”!
Below you will find a few more peeks in to the newspaper through the years. He thoroughly reports the cat news in the neighborhood.
Thank you for reading and see you next time,
