History of Waltham newspapers

Despite my post earlier this week taking the News-Tribune to task for its real estate coverage, I don't think everything the newspaper publishes is crap.

Last Friday, for instance, there was an interesting historical piece by reporter Galen Moore about the half-dozen or so newspapers that have been published in Waltham since the early 1800s. There were a few failed attempts at weeklies, but by the late 1890s there were three dailies: the Daily Tribune, the Free Press, and the Waltham Evening News. After a bunch of mergers and acquisitions, we were left with the Daily News Tribune. The article has all of the details.

And the Brandeis and Bentley papers (which the article don't mention) but they are in a special class, and not available off campus.
