Camp Newsletters

Camp Newsletters

Camp enrollees used a variety of terms to refer to their regular camp publications, such as Chronicle, Log, Messenger, News, Press, Journal, Spoofer, Tabloid, Voice, Weekly, and others. Newsletter is used to refer to all publications as a group. Newsletters often followed Companies as they moved between camps. Names of newsletters typically changed within a Company to reflect a new project designation (P, SCS, SP, etc.) at an existing camp, the movement of the Company into a new camp (and project), or when a new editorial staff came on board.

As camp newsletters are located and digitized from microfilm, collected and archived volumes are listed by Company and then newsletter chronology.
