Following the first book which covered the years 1886 to 1900, this book continues a comprehensive study of Winston County newspapers from 1901 and 1908. This book draws most of its source material from the New Era and the resurrected Winston Herald. Other clippings come from early Haleyville newspapers. Not many of these issues exist and come from the State Archives in Montgomery. Some of the issues represented are from the Haleyville Enterprise, the Square Deal, the Haleyville News, and the Winston County News. Also, clippings from the Jasper Mountain Eagle were reviewed for news items relevant to Winston County and were included in this volume. Particular attention was paid to capture births, deaths, and marriages, along with other important news items. Whole columns of area correspondents were transcribed and show much of the day to day life of the folks from Winston County. A full name index is provided. The early history of the turn of 20th Century Winston County is found within these pages.
