Aristarchus Champion papers, 1806-1892 0.60 Cubic Feet
Calendar and Carrier Greetings Collection, 1828-present 1.33 Cubic Feet
This collection consists of calendars and carrier greetings dating between 1828 and the present. The carrier greetings and the majority of the calendars were produced by local newspapers for distribution to subscribers. While much of the collection was assembled for historical interest, recent calendars have largely been collected due to their image content. For example, the Erie Canalway calendars represent the winners of an annual photographic contest, and the calendars are retained as much for aesthetic reasons as for informational ones. This is an artificial collection assembled by the Local History & Genealogy Division of the Rochester Public Library.
