100 years of the Index-Journal, community journalism: 'A Family Affair' opening at The Museum

Posted

Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at The Museum is the grand opening of an exhibit about the Index-Journal of Greenwood, S.C., which is celebrating its centennial this year. The Index-Journal's first edition was published Feb. 6, 1919.

As one of the last family-owned newspapers in South Carolina, "A Family Affair – A Century of Publishing a Daily Newspaper" looks at the origins and evolution of the Lakelands' number one source for local news and information.

Marion Smith, The Museum's exhibits coordinator, said for him, putting together this exhibit has been an interesting look into "how we as human beings receive information."

Three different components make up the exhibit, Smith said, noting it looks at the Index-Journal's history, evolution of the printed word from ancient times to present and an exhibit on The Museum's vintage typewriters.
