The American Legion’s Digital Archive has gotten a new batch of historical documents. Recently added is the full run of the National Legionnaire, a newspaper that ran more or less monthly from January 1935 through November 1948. The Legionnaire provided the latest news on Legion activities and priorities from across the country; it is reminiscent of today’s Dispatch publication. It was folded into The American Legion Magazine as its own section in February 1949.
2017 will bring even more additions to the Digital Archive, including 30 years of press releases from the Legion’s news service; digests of NEC meetings and national conventions; and American Legion reports to Congress.
