In search of the Syracuse Herald


My inter-library loan request for the Syracuse Herald came back "negative." Curiously, no library has microfilm of this newspaper for the period I'm researching - the early and mid-1920's. And apparently, the only institutions which have bound volumes dating from the twenties are the Onondaga Historical Association and Onondaga Library System. Normally, bound volumes of newspaper are not loaned - they are just too big and fragile.
Would anyone who lives in Syracuse, New York or in Onondaga county be willing to track down a few reviews by visiting these Onondaga institutions? Denishawn performed in Syracuse in April, 1924. Having earlier gone through the Syracuse Post-Standard, I also have dates for a handful of screenings of Louise Brooks films.
