Nashville Banner Clippings Index


The Nashville Banner Clippings collection is composed of clippings from both the Banner (afternoon) and Tennessean (morning) newspapers and was maintained by Banner employees from the 1950s to the early 1990s. The Banner Clippings Index provides an index to both biographical and subject files from the Banner Clippings. The index uses the titles provided by the creator of this collection.

These materials document the time period when they were created and the view of the Banner newspaper. As a result, some titles may contain racial, gender, sexual, religious terms and other language and imagery that are harmful or offensive. It may be necessary to use outdated and possibly offensive terms in order to obtain successful search results for a topic of interest. For example, using "alien" for immigrants, “Negro” for black or African American. Files for a married woman will likely be found under her husband's name rather than her own.
