Cover selection, Happy days : a paper for young and old, v. XLI, no. 1055, January 2, 1915

This week brings a number of new newspaper issues to your attention: 4 from the initial set of digitized content from Catholic Standard and Times and 47 issues – primarily from the war years – from the ongoing digitization of the story paper, Happy Days. In addition a few new dime novels and 6 issues of the rare French theater journal – Le Théatre are newly available. We also find another volume of the Reader’s Guide to Periodical Literature available from our digital partner the Catholic Library Association, as well as a significant number of new content from the Barry-Hayes papers from the Independence Seaport Museum. As the temperatures drop, and the “polar vortex” nears, brew a mug of hot chocolate and grab your favorite tablet or e-reader and explore!
