1891 Baltimore's first Polish language newspaper, Polonia,
appeared. It was the start of a flourishing press of newspapers
and literary journals in the community. Many of these were short-lived
or appealed to particular audiences (i.e. religious, humorous, literary,
etc.) Unfortunately, we know their titles, but there are no known
holdings in existence.
the Dziennik Chicagoski (Chicago Daily News) reprinted abstracts
from the various local Polish press throughout America including
Baltimore's. This volume contains the newspaper abstracts from Baltimore's
Polish language newspapers. The abstracts have been translated into
English and are reprinted in choronological order and are completely
indexed. The volume constitutes the only remnants of the local Polonian
press which is no longer extant for this period.
