Do you know if the Public Library of Cincinnati has preserved old copies
of
19th century German-American newspapers?

I have been searching for newspapers published in Memphis, TN (my home
town) for a rather large German community in the city at the end of the

19th

century. The Memphis-Shelby Co. Library gave me a list of these G.A.
newspapers, copied from the book by Carl Arndt and May Olson,
"German-American Newspapers and Periodicals." In particular, I have been
searching for "Deutsche Zeitung" published in Memphis by Louis G. Fritz
because he was a friend of my grandfather. The catch is that it seems

no

copies of these old newspapers have been preserved, not even in the US
Newspaper Project at the University of Tennessee.

I located a copy of Dr. Arndt's book, and learned that "Deutsche Zeitung"
was part of his private collection of German newspapers which he donated
to
the American Antiquarian Society in Worchester, MA. This society tells

me

that they do not have Dr. Arndt's collection, because they only accept
newspapers dated before 1876. What has become of this collection? The
college in Worchester where Dr. Arndt was head of the German Department

in

the 1960s does not have his newspaper collection.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone with information about collections
of
19th century German-American newspapers.

Thanks for listening to this long story,
Cora
