Grand Rapids Public Library underground newspapers collection
The Grand Rapids Public Library underground newspapers collection is a devised collection which documents a genre of newspapers held in the Grand Rapids Public Library Archives. These Michigan underground newspapers share a time period in history from 1969 to 1973, during a time of civil unrest in the United States. In most cases only sample items are available, while for the title “Root”, several issues are included, though it is believed that this is not a complete run of the title. These titles are available on microfilm for daily use. Original paper holdings for the issues listed in this finding aid are also currently held by the Library, though their paper form may not physically survive as long as the microfilm.
