Acquisition and Processing Information

This newspaper collection was given to the WSU Libraries by the Washington State Historical Society, circa 1980, as a single bound volume. All of the newspapers were removed from the binding as a preservation measure, due to their fragility, and the contents were processed in 2008 by Cheryl Gunselman.

Collection Description

These materials were collected by newspaper editor and publisher Edward N. Fuller (1824-1904), probably in his role as Press Historian for the Washington Press Association. After arriving in the Washington Territory in 1882, Fuller attempted to collect and preserve "all of the first numbers of papers published possible to obtain..." (Fuller 1891). Political parties and special interest groups in Washington Territory are well represented. In addition to newspapers published in Washington during the territorial period, this collection includes papers from other parts of the Pacific Northwest, and also from England and Japan. A few are identified as reprints. The collection includes many rare titles. Where information about library holdings of individual titles could be found, it was added to the collection and filed with the item.
