THE CHARLOTTE NEWS

July - December, 1940 UNASCRIBED EDITORIALS

_______

The daily edition of The Charlotte News was established in 1888. The Sunday edition was added in 1910. The
Evening Chronicle, established in 1903, was purchased by and consolidated with The Charlotte News May 8, 1914.

We seek truth that we may follow it.

Presently, there are 679 editorials from the second half of 1940; eventually, there will be about 35 more. All dates marked "+" were added July, 2001; those marked "|A|", added August, 2001; May-June, 1940, and editorials marked "|F|", added Feb., 2002; those marked "-J-", "-Nov-", "-Dec-" added January, November, December, 2003; those marked "=Je=", "=Jy=", "=Aug=", "=Sept=", "=Oct=" added June-October, 2004; those marked "{J}", "{Aug}", "{Dec}", added January, August, December, 2005; those marked ╬Sept╬, ╬Oct╬, added October, 2008. Articles marked "*" are of probable but uncertain attribution to Cash. Last additions, October, 2008.

The referent "[c]" indicates a corrected editorial in August, 2005, filling in previously indiscernible words or passages.

Missing from the extant microfilm records of the newspaper for the second half of 1940 is the following date:

Dec. 1, (and Dec. 25 on which the newspaper was not published).

Because for some time we have not as yet been updating editorials to the subject divisions, beginning in 2005 we are adding subject notations to the additions to the chronological listings:

"W"=War in Europe and Generally;
"WP"=War in the Pacific;
"IP"=International Politics;
"NP"=National Politics;
"SL"=State and Local Politics;
"G"=General Subjects.
