    General 1975

    This scrapbook contains articles and photos cut out of the Springfield newspapers. There are a few articles from some area newspapers. All pages are intact and most of the pages are in good shape. Articles have been glued in haphazardly on many pages. Most of the dates and sources are intact, however, there are articles with dates and no source. Some sources have simply been listed as News & Leader. Many articles/photos are duplicated.
