Welcome to the Oak Ridge Public Library Digital Collections, Oak Ridge, Tennessee

About this collection

The Oak Ridge Journal was published weekly from September 4, 1943 through May 27, 1948. The first issue was four, small mimeographed pages which eventually grew to twelve pages. The first printed issue was published on March 2, 1944. A shortage of newsprint limited this issue to four 9 x 12” pages. Once delivered on horseback, the newspaper for the “Secret City” informed the growing population of official decisions, social activities, and helped form a sense of community and kinship.

     

Editors were:

 

     Sergeant M. S. Levine & Private D. M. Wendland, from 1943-1944

 

     Carleton Jealous, 1944

 

     Frances Smith Gates, 1944-1947

 

     Thomas F. X. Gates, 1947-1948.
