Newly Digitized: Magazine Articles and Ephemera

Posted On: March 3, 2014

The most recent additions to the Whittier History Room website include four new articles from Out West magazine, in the Periodicals section of the site, and nine new pieces of Ephemera.

The newly digitized Out West magazine articles were originally published in 1903, 1906 and 1912. Among topics covered in the articles are Whittier's agricultural and oil industries, banks, churches, Whittier College, and Fred C. Nelles State School. The articles also include photographs of the town, and caricature drawings of early residents.

Newly digitized items in the Ephemera section of the site include citrus labels, train tickets, advertisements, a postcard and an event program. These items range in origin from 1899 to 1955.
