This last newspaper survey largely completes my three year survey of Bay Area publications. In summation, here is what I looked at and where I found it:

-- Oakland Public Library (Oakland Tribune, Oakland Post-Enquirer)
-- University of California, Berkeley (Berkeley Daily Gazette, Contra Costa Gazette, Daily Californian, Oakland Morning Record, San Rafael Independent)
-- California State University, Hayward (Hayward Review, Hayward Daily Review, Oakland Free Press, San Leandro Reporter, Township Register)
-- San Mateo Public Library (San Mateo Times)
-- Stanford University (Daily Palo Alto, Palo Alto Times, Stanford Daily)
-- San Jose State University (Los Gatos Mail News, San Jose Evening News, San Jose Mercury Herald, San Jose Mercury News)
-- California State Library (Alameda Times-Star, Illustrated Daily Herald, Livermore Herald, Marin Journal, Santa Rosa Press Democrat)
