Bit Of History – 1986 Shuttle Disaster

I just uploaded four newspaper pages from the the day that the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded on take-off in January of 1986. The crew member who is most remembered is teacher, Christa McAuliffe. Also added a few odds and ends of local news. Of particular interest are tech-related stories from 1971 that feature the picturephone and bootleg 8-track tapes.

Classic Newspapers – The Big Snow of 1982

Most St. Louisans (at least the ones who are 40 or older) remember the snow storm of 1982 as the ‘Big One’ that virtually shut down the city. A week after the storm, the Post-Dispatch published a special section covering the event. All 12 pages of that section have just added to HotMeatloaf.com.

More Classic Old Newspapers

A few more pages have been added to my classic newspaper site, HotMeatloaf.com. I’ve added a new section for local news. Local, in this case, is the St.Louis suburbs of Madison and Granite City, Illinois, and the newspapers are the Granite City Press-Record of 1960 and 1970, and the Granite City Journal of 1977. There is nothing earth-shaking, just small town news. If you are a history buff, are familiar with the area or just want a look back to the good old days, check out the Local News.

Classic Newspapers – Iranian Hostages Released – January 21, 1981

Several pages have just been added to the classic newspapers at HotMeatloaf.com. The date was Jan. 21, 1981 and the Iranian hostages were released as Ronald Reagan was sworn in as President. Six full pages from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat are available. Hard to believe that it has been more than 30 years since that day.

More old papers have just been added to HotMeatloaf.com. Most notable is from August 9, 1974, when President Nixon resigned. Also added, are several long gone newspapers from the St.Louis area. There is already quite a bit for history buffs to explore at the site, and more will be added in the future.
