Edited by Walton H. Rawls
pg.41

"The Long Island Historical Society, Thanks to its foundation one hundred years ago, has the largest collection of early Long Island newspapers in existence. Because of the prestige the Society enjoyed as the sole historical body on the island for decades, many persons, editors among them, donated complete files of papers dating back even into the eighteenth century. In this fashion the Society acquired not only nearly all the Brooklyn newspapers that had appeared before its founding, but also many Long Island papers."
