Wow these are great Robert! This archive has publications I’ve never even heard of! I mean, who’s ever heard of “Everybody’s Paper”? lol

My ultimate wish though – and I know it’s likely just a pipe-dream – is to have all these publications scanned through an OCR reader and then be able to search the documents in the same way you can search them the WT Library. For instance, put in the search entry “1914” and it would bring up every article or publication that contained that search query.

But I am very thankful for what you’ve found here, as it’s a great start. And as Google gets better at reading image-sourced PDFs and such, this may become even more viable site towards that goal.
