Short Description of Collection
The Baltimore Sun financial and selected labor records dates from 1837-1986 and contains information pertaining to Sun finances and Baltimore Newspaper Guild relations. Financial materials include monthly statements, treasurer's reports, tax and payroll records, financial correspondence, and transactional files in both loose and ledger formats. Among the Guild materials are correspondence, meeting minutes, and documents from the Sun and Guild negotiations. Also contained in this collection are Guild newsletters from the late 1930s and early 1940s, many of which were the personal copies of H.L. Mencken. While the materials above compose the majority of the collection, legal documents, specifications for the Calvert Street plant, and radio and television documents are also present.
