Description

Summary

Business correspondence, editorial memoranda, circulation and financial reports, details for the construction and enlargement of the Pulitzer Building on Park Row, and general papers of THE WORLD. The earlier part of this collection is made up of all materials brought to the attention of Joseph Pulitzer during his editorship and that of his son, Ralph Pulitzer. For the time from Joseph Pulitzer's death in 1911 until ca. 1920, the papers are primarily the files of THE WORLD's "Bureau of Accuracy and Fair Play" directed by Isaac D. White. During the 1920s and until 1931, there is also much material from other departments of the paper such as the composing room, the purchasing department, and the auditors. Also included is a re-recorded audio tape from cylinders originally placed in the World Building cornerstone, October 9-10, 1889. The materials from 1932 until 1940 are insurance policies for the Pulitzer Building and financial reports winding up the affairs of the Pulitzer's Press Publishing Company. Materials collected by R.H. Lyman of THE WORLD's staff from 1893 until 1931 have been added.

Shelf 12/34w/6/8 Copper Cornerstone Box, October 1899.

When the World Building was set for demolition in 1955 to give better access to another great New York City monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, the cornerstone box could not be found. But during the wrecking process, it was struck by machinery and rescued. Most but not all of its contents came to Columbia to be added toThe WorldRecords. Missing from the group, according toThe World Its History & Its New Home, are: three gold coins; three silver coins; and the silver medal struck when The World circulation reached 250,000.
