I have been asked to post a request for assistance in locating original
copies (not microfilm) of newspapers that can be filmed or photographed.
The list of needs is:


Hannibal Journal (1851--1853)
    September 16, 1852
    May 6, 1853
    September 8, 1853
    (masthead from any of the papers during Twain's tenure there)
(I understand that the State Historical Society of Missouri at Columbia,
has original copies of the "Hannibal Journal" but will not allow them to be
filmed or photographed under any circumstances.  For whatever reasons, I'm
not sure.)

Daily Territorial Enterprise (Sept. 1862--May, 1864)
    February 3, 1863
    (masthead from any of the papers during Twain's tenure there)

Daily Morning Call (May--October, 1864)
