The 1915 PDF addition, however, has the advantage of being keyword searchable.
I found one at a used book sale a while back and it had a bunch of newspaper clippings from the 60's in it. I recognized a few names in it. They ended up being relatives of my mother's friend. I gave her the clippings and she passed them on to the grand kids, who are now adults themselves. It was cool.
