In following up at the Library of Virginia on a recent find , I was fortunate to receive a roll of microfiche containing a number of 20th century Richmond newspapers. Included were a number of precursors to our current crop of community blogs, including the mid-1960s The Citizen.
While The Citizen covered stories from around the city, their purely local focus and civic interest shares as much with the community blogs as the more regional Times-Dispatch. It would be great to have the available run of The Citizen digitized and searchable.
