The Day Paper book coverAbout the Book

The book is a narrative history of The Day, of New London, CT, a daily newspaper in southern New England that has preserved its independence from newspaper chains through a trust created by its owner, Theodore Bodenwein, in 1938. The book brings to life not only the history and inner workings of a small local newspaper but the story of a downcast old New England city's struggle to renew itself after the decline of its whaling industry. It traces the rags to riches life of Theodore Bodenwein, one of the few publisher's in the history of American journalism who was able to transmit his newspaper and its values to future generations intact.
