Forgotten newspapers rediscovered

Wednesday, April 28, 2021
A year-long run of the Seligman Sunbeam newspaper, from 1972-1973, has been donated to the Barry County Museum. Jeremiah Buntin, left, museum historian, and Kathy White, director, reviewed the acquisition, noting the museum had few samples of the paper. The collection had come into the hands of the late Phyllis Freisner, a founding member of the Barry County Genealogical and Historical Society, who gave them to fellow society founding member Lisa Lamp, of Monett. Lamp gave them to Murray Bishoff, former Monett Times news editor, who took them to the museum. Bunting said the papers would be scanned so the public could again have access to their glimpse into some forgotten history. Murray Bishoff/Cassville Democrat
