Scope and Contents
These newspapers, many of which might be more accurately described as newsletters or fliers, contain general military news,
humorous writing and comic strips (especially Male Call by Milton Caniff), and information on special services programs such
as athletics, film screenings and other events. Nearly all contain references to a Dick Jurgens All Marine appearance. There
are two single pages from unidentified newspapers with Jurgens articles as well. The paper in most cases is quite fragile,
and physical condition varies, but given their rarity and importance, all newspapers have been listed as follows:
