MILLSTADT (IL) MISCELLANEOUS NEWS INDEX

 

by Robert Buecher, 5400 Pernod Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63139-1537

[Revised: August 2006]

 

The following list is an alphabetical index to miscellaneous newspaper articles published  about Millstadt, Illinois.  Most of the articles were published in the MILLSTADT  ENTERPRISE, a weekly newspaper published at Millstadt; with some before May 1897 being published in the Belleville WEEKLY ADVOCATE (marked BWA).  The Millstadt paper began publication on May 14, 1897.  The name was changed on Oct. 4, 1989 to the MILLSTADT ENTERPRISE JOURNAL.  The following index is not a complete index to all articles and not all issues of the newspaper have as yet been checked.  Additional articles will be added in later editions of this index.  The index mainly covers local businesses, churches, organizations, people, and schools. 

 

The following missing issues of the ENTERPRISE could NOT be indexed:

 

            June 17, 1898                          May   9, 1913                          Apr. 23, 1920

            July 22, 1898                           May 15, 1914                          Nov. 16, 1920

            Nov. 11, 1898                         Feb. 22, 1918                          May   9, 1940

            Dec. 28, 1900                          Mar.  8, 1918                           March 9, 1953

 

The front page of the issues for May 14, 1926 and April 15, 1948 were missed during microfilming, so no articles which might appear on those pages were indexed.

 

The pages of the newspaper were not numbered until sometime in the late 1940’s.  Generally, local Millstadt news was published on pages 1, 4, 5, and 8; while state, national, and world news appeared on the other pages.

 

All existing issues of this newspaper have been microfilmed by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library (formerly the Illinois State Historical Library), 112 North Sixth Street, Springfield, IL 62701.  Microfilmed copies may be examined there or at the Belleville Public Library, 121 East Washington, Belleville, IL  62220.

 

Some of the original issues of the Millstadt Enterprise / Enterprise Journal are currently (2006) housed at the offices of the Monroe County Publishing Company, 212 West Locust, Columbia, IL 62236.  Access to the originals may be restricted.
