Scope and Content

Sometime prior to 1974, someone read through the Cedar Falls Gazette and extracted references to the Orphans Home and the Iowa State Normal School.  Coverage extends from January 12, 1866 through December 26, 1884.  Entries for each reference consist of date, page, column, and a brief summary of the reference.  This extensive list of references is an excellent means of surveying the local viewpoint on the development of the institution that would later become the University of Northern Iowa.
