The Daily Cosmopolitan

What's Inside this Collection.

The Daily Cosmopolitan

Published in Cameron County, Texas, the Daily Cosmopolitan began distribution to the Brownsville population in 1879. Jointly filling the roles of both publisher and editor were H. St. Clair and W.P. Guirey. The Daily Cosmopolitan was issued every night of the week except Sunday. W.P. Guirey was fluent in Spanish and therefore specialized in reporting on Matamoros residents and topics, along with nearby border town news. This project was generously funded by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission through the TexTreasures Early Texas Newspapers program.
