About the Collection

Founded in 1909 by Henry Berryman Terrell, a politician and newspaperman from McLennan County, this newspaper has served the thriving farming and railroad community of West, a town that still holds to the Czech heritage of the original settlers in the area, making certain names within the paper easy to locate. Digitization was funded by a Tocker Foundation grant.
