Paperboy of the Day: The “Geez, Beav — Quit giving me the Business” edition

Media_httpdigitallibe_mebfs

All the way back from 1966, this youngster is throwing The Daily Reflector in Greenville, North Carolina.

My good friend and former Reflector Copy Chief Greg Laudick tipped me off to this story about how the paper’s former owners donated some 7,500 photos and the copyright to East Carolina University’s Joyner Library.

End result is that all of the images are online and available for free non-commercial use.

Thanks to the Whichard family for the donation and the Joyner librarians for all of their digitizing hard work!
