|WHITMAN BAILEY SKETCHES:
Inventoried Collection IC112, Data Now Online.
Beginning in 1924 and continuing for the next thirty years, Whitman Bailey's sketches appeared in the Stamford Advocate almost weekly. Black and white drawings of local scenes, the sketches were accompanied by brief vignettes of the scene. Mostly factual, at times the stories presented were local folklore faithfully transmitted for the interest of the reader. Thanks to Dorothy Mix and other volunteers, our collection of the newspaper clippings has been organized and scanned and may be viewed in the Marcus Research Library.
We are intermittently blogging these sketches.
