|Bound Newspapers, Houston County, TN. Archives|
Many people saved whole newspapers when there was a national tragedy that called for a bold headline. The entire newspaper was saved because the person understood the significance of the event and thought saving the newspaper would be a good thing. Maybe the entire newspaper wasn't saved but an entire page of the newspaper was saved. Saving the front page of the newspaper to document an event or if there was a story about a family member that was a big article that took up most of one page and carried over to another page.
