  • 1982-1984 

    Historical Sketch

    Planned as a weekly community newspaper devoted to events and news in Moorhead, the Monitor began publication on February 4, 1982. Financial difficulties forced the paper to cease publication in February 1983, while the business was reorganized. The Monitor returned to print in May 1983, and continued until continued shortage of revenue forced the management to end publication in March 1984. 

    Collection Description

    Business and corporation files on the Monitor are arranged by subject in chronological order including by-laws, corporation charter, meeting minutes, receipts and tax records. A complete set of the Monitor is bound in three volumes, and contains news on contemporary events in Moorhead, Minnesota. All materials are in excellent condition.
