Eight issues of the Albemarle Observer, from Edenton, North Carolina, are now available online. Issues from the “only newspaper published in Chowan County” date from August to November, 1917, and cover news about individuals and businesses throughout the area.

As these issues were published in the midst of World War I, they include listings of Chowan County individuals who had been drafted to serve in the military, those who were required to report for wartime physical examinations, and other wartime news.
