Content Roundup – First and Second Weeks – April 2021

Detail p. 1, Color cover illustration: “The Volcano of Vesuvius in Eruption”, Saturday Globe, v. 18, no. 20, Saturday, October 1, 1898

This double week Content Roundup features the most recent content digitized from Distinctive Collections including a number of treasures including an early survey of the land that will become Villanova College, the first known Alumni Association minute book as well as more Dime Novels and story papers. Notable as well are issues of the Saturday Globe newspaper reputed to be the first United States national newspaper; this Utica New York published weekly newspaper also was one of the first to regularly feature a full color cover illustration on the front page, often graphically portraying an event such as a disaster or war (note the above illustration of the then current eruption of Vesuvius).
