Discuss between 1877 and the 1930s, the American people expanded across the globe, fought the Native Americans in the west, and experienced the effects of
the Industrial Age. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle Online website gives us a unique
opportunity to experience how the most important national/international events
were reported and viewed by the people of the time. It also provides a detailed
portrait of what “ordinary life” was like in one of the most important cities in the
US. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle can be viewed through the following link:

Please note that the easiest way to access the paper is by right clicking on the
link and opening it in a new window (outside of Bristol Online) or by
cutting/pasting the link directly into your browser.
After examining the newspaper on two specific dates during the 1920s-30s,
write a short paper of about three pages summarizing your observations. The
paper should focus on one aspect that you found most interesting/surprising
about the life of “ordinary” Americans during that period and how life changed
during those very turbulent decades. In other words, the paper should not focus
on national issues, national politics, etc. but rather on something that would have
directly affected your life if you had lived during that time period. In trying to
decide on a topic, pay special attention to the advertisements, how local stories
were reported, business dealings, sports, fashion, social life, etc. Your paper could
focus on anything from the importance (or lack thereof) of sports in daily life, the
employment opportunities for women or other minorities, the reporting of
crimes, etc. and then analyze why it is significant to an understanding of the
people of the time.
The dates, which should be analyzed, are your birthdates for each of the two
decades– using the last digit to determine the year. In other words, if you were
born on July 11, 1975, you should analyze the editions of 7/11/1925 and
7/11/1935. If you were born on September 17, 1982, you should analyze the
editions of 9/17/1922 and 9/17/1932. If you were born on November 15, 1990,
you should analyze the editions of 11/15/1920 and 11/15/1930.
In order to read the newspapers on your birthdays, select the appropriate
year, month and day under “Browse by Date” to the left of the screen. Then, the
correct edition of the paper should appear on the following screen and you can
begin browsing through the paper. You will need to do this only twice– once for
your birthday in the 1920s and once for the 1930s.
