Front cover, Comfort, v. XXII, no. 12, October 1910

This week we bring a few new issues of the story-paper Comfort and a new religious dime novel to your attention. As well, a rare report on the reorganization of the Indian army from 1920 and a host of newly digitized newspapers from the Joseph McGarrity Collection are available. McGarrity, a noted collector of Irish books and periodicals, had an exceptionally strong set of rare newspaper titles – many of which deal with Ireland and the Irish-American experience, but his collection was not limited to just this focus. This week two non-Irish titles from the collection can be accessed: the rare Philadelphia newspaper the Constitutional diary and Philadelphia evening advertiser and the Newark, New Jersey title the Centinel of freedom spanning 1799-1800.

This update brings a number of newly digitized materials to your attention. The final 28 parts of the Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church finish off the digitization of that important resource. Two photograph albums – one covering the cross-country road trip of 3 your Pennsylvania men during the summer of 1924 and another depicting the reunion trip of a group of World War I veterans back to the battlefields of Europe a year after the war concluded, were added this week. Of significance also is the creation of the Autocar collection of materials covering the Ardmore automotive company. In addition a few new story paper issues and two complete Philadelphia Ceili Group music workshops conclude this set of offerings!
