Gaelic Americans

This week brings a new podcast episode of the reading of Mrs. Miller’s the Bride of the Tomb. After listening this this, take some time to catch up on the newly available issues of dime novels (in Spanish) and story papers (in English). Read along in issues of the 1917 Gaelic American as the US involvement in the Great War heats up. As well, over-sized materials from a variety of series of the Barry-Hayes papers are now available! And finally a fantastic German-American friendship scrapbook is presented… can the animosities of World War I stop an ongoing friendship, or will the hostilities (and censorship) stamp out a long enduring correspondence? Read on to find out…

This week sees our Milestone 20,000th item added as well as a host of other diverse items for your research and reading pleasures. Especially noteworthy is a rare Ulster musical song book, Songs of Uladh, which was requested by a scholar for use online and then digitized and added to the collection all within a week. Work continues on the Barry-Hayes collection; description and digitization continues with series 52 this week.

Story Paper issues from the newspaper Happy Days are available due to the ongoing generosity of a digital donor. And as we continue digitization of materials in support of the upcoming anniversary of the Great War, this week brings us the almost complete 1915 and 1916 years of the rare Irish newspaper the Gaelic American: noteworthy coverage includes the sinking of the RMS Lusitania; coverage of the Irish Race Convention; the incarceration and trial of Roger Casement, and the ongoing war in Europe.

This week brings us several newly digitized dime novels including work on the first complete physical series acquired so far: “Motor Stories” as well as the Spanish language WWI series “Los dramas de la guerra”. We also find several new issues of the rare and important story paper the “Chicago Ledger” and, from the McGarrity newspaper collection, rare issues of the “Irish worker and people’s advocate” and “The Gaelic American”. Meanwhile, work continues apace on the digitization of the Independence Seaport Museum’s Barry-Hayes collection with several new series being competed this week. Finally for your listening pleasure, two vintage 1977 music collections – both from the Philadelphia Ceili Group – grace the collection and provide a delightful and heartwarming listening treat for the colder October season!
