Community Journalism in a Secret City: The Oak Ridge Journal, 1943-1948

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In 1943 the federal government approved publication of the Oak Ridge Journal, a weekly flyer sent to residents at one of three secret towns created to develop the Manhattan Project. This in-depth review of the Journal’s content reveals that early issues focused mainly on government propaganda aimed at workers, but over time the publication grew to look and read more like a traditional community newspaper. Even as it evolved, government censorship was still evident.
