The Wisconsin Genealogical Society’s Facebook page states: “Attention Wisconsin and northern Illinois genealogical and historical societies with your own libraries!! Marquette University is discarding large microfilm backruns of the Chicago Tribune (1849-2009), the New York Times (1857-2009), the Washington Post (1978-2009), and the Times of London (1785-2015). Rather than just dumping these films into a landfill, we’re trying to find a good home for them. They are FREE for the hauling.”

My thanks to newsletter reader Mrs. Marcella Harteau for telling me about this story.
