INTRODUCTION TO THE CHRONOLOGICAL INDEX

     Listed below, in chronological order within each year, are over 2000 

letters printed in the Times from 1881 through 1889.  Eventually two additional 

indexes will be added, one listing the letters alphabetically by author and the 

other by subject.  

     This index does not include every letter published during that period, 

although that was the original intent.  Approximately an entire year of the 

paper is missing and was never microfilmed.  In addition, the difficulty of 

locating letters in the Times during a period in which there was no regular 

page for them probably means that a few letters were never found in the papers 

that are available.  

     There are no doubt errors in the index: names misspelled, dates copied or 

typed incorrectly, pages wrongly numbered, letters categorized by the wrong 

topic, etc.  Since this is a cyberbook, those errors can be easily corrected if 

brought to our attention.  You are encouraged to do that, sending an e-mail 

message to reshaffer@csupomona.edu.  

     Certain abbreviations have been used to save space.  In "Topics," the 

following are used: agri = agriculture; misc = miscellaneous; PPs = political 

parties; RRs = railroads.  Elsewhere, "Ed" or "ed" refers to "editor."  Most of 

the others, it is hoped, are obvious.  Occasionally a letter that was 

particularly GOOD or FUNNY caught our attention and is so marked in the 

"comment" column.

     Nouns used in the index are not case sensitive.  For speed in typing, and 

since the original intent was that the index was only a tool to be used in 

writing the anthology, no effort was made to capitalize the first letters of 

names, etc.  When the decision was made to include the index as part of the 

anthology, the task of going through it and capitalizing where appropriate was 

not worth the effort.  The assumption is that a reader who is interested in a 

particular author or topic can find the item in the Times, using the index, 

whether the name is capitalized or not.

     Thanks to the students in my Fall, 1992, American History class who 

compiled a portion of this index as they researched various topics in the 

Times.  It should be noted, however, that the student who was assigned Dec., 

1881, found only the letter on dogs by FS, and for some time that was thought 

to be the first letter printed in the Times.  Only years later did Cambro's 

earlier letter, which was the first, come to light, much to our chagrin.
