The Acquisitions Table: The Deposit Courier

AAS has few newspapers from Delaware County, NY and, until this spring, only two issues from the town of Deposit. Six years ago we were the underbidder at auction on a lot of the Deposit Courier. The person who won it was a Californian, John Aiello, who had grown up in Deposit. Mr. Aiello promised to donate his run to AAS when he was done reading them and copying articles. Now he has made good on his promise, and the issues have arrived, giving a major boost to our Deposit holdings. This paper began publication in 1849 and continued until 1853 under the editorship of C.E. Wright.
