|Scope and Content|
The collection offers insights into the operation of a small town newspaper, its funding, competition, customer concerns, and the interest of its owner in acquiring other small local newspapers. This is especially reflected in the correspondence and in a written statement by William M. Campbell chronicling his own career and negotiations to purchase the Woodville News.
