Disclaimer
These historic newspapers are intended for the enjoyment of those persons interested in Brainerd history.
The City of Brainerd shall not be liable for any damages or claims that arise due to accuracy, availability,

The following microfilmed newspapers were digitized using the Brainerd Public Library's digital microfilm
reader and are available in Adobe PDF format (www.adobe.com). Each PDF file is about 7-8 Megabytes.

Brainerd Dispatch (weekly)

The earliest issue on microfilm is Vol II No. 33, published on August 2, 1883,
after N.H. Ingersoll and F.W. Wieland took over management of the Dispatch.
A stricken-through date (Dec 13) means that the issue was not microfilmed.
An italicized date (Apr 2) means that the date on the newspaper masthead is
not the usual publication date — it could be right, or it could be printer error
(it was published on Thursday through July 31, 1884 and Friday thereafter).
