Twice-a-Week Dispatch Newspaper from Burlington NC Added to DigitalNC

The Alamance County Public Libraries has just shared issues of the State Dispatch, later known as the Twice-a-Week Dispatch, on DigitalNC. Issues are available from 1908-1915 (with some exceptions).

The tagline of the Dispatch began as “A Republican newspaper devoted to the upbuilding of American homes and American industries,” and later changed to include the word “progressive.” The paper covers Republican events and ideas, as well as local news from Burlington and surrounding areas of Alamance county like Graham and Whitsett. Later issues see the beginnings of World War I.

This paper joins other Alamance county papers on DigitalNC: The Alamance Gleaner, the Mebane Leader, and the Elon University Student Newspaper. Alamance County Public Libraries has also shared additional items that can be found through their contributor page.Twice a Week Dispatch headline, 8- 4-1914
