Masthead for The Tryon Daily Bulletin.

The Tryon Daily Bulletin, January 17, 1942.

Another new newspaper title, The Tryon Daily Bulletin, is now accessible on DigitalNC thanks to our partners, Polk County Public Library. Known as “The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper”, The Tryon Daily Bulletin delivered the news in Polk County, N.C., Monday through Saturday, as it continues to do to this day. Over 2000 issues spanning the years 1928 to 1942 are available to view, advertising local events such as church gatherings, political meetings, and events around town. Daily reporting made it easier for The Tryon Daily Bulletin to bring the most current news to the community, best represented by the “Curb Reporter” front page articles.
