Birmingham Newspapers Historical Comic Strip Index

What Is This?

From 2007 to 2010, I worked on the process of constructing a historical index for the comic strip content of the newspapers of Birmingham, Alabama. During that time, I completed daily indices for the Birmingham News, Age-Herald and Post. Job and location changes caused me to put this aside for a long time, but the development over the years of has allowed me to pick it up again in 2022, and I've begun work on the Post-Herald. The work plan from here, which is likely to run through the end of 2024, is to complete the Post-Herald then circle back to the beginning to do Sunday indices.
