    Collection Description

    This collection (see box list) contains the run, from 1927 through 1960, of a local Culver City, California, weekly newspaper. This weekly was originally called the Western Citizen as witness to its coverage of communities in western Los Angeles (Mar Vista, Culver City, Albright City, and Barnes City), but saw a title change to The Citizen for the 6 December 1929 issue. In 1942 The Citizen became The Citizen and Cheviot Chatter, the latter a weekly newspaper for Cheviot Hills, which had appeared as inserts in The Citizen before their merger. Because of the newspaper's coverage of Culver City, The Citizen and Cheviot Chatter contains much material on MGM, the famous movie studio located the city.
    The newspapers are bound, usually by year, in leather-bound hard covers, some with newspaper name and dates of issue embossed on the spine. The arrangement of the collection is chronological (1927-1960). These holdings of The Citizen and Cheviot Chatter are probably incomplete. Unfortunately, the issues for the dates 4 February 1927 through 29 November 1929 are extremely brittle, making them unsuitable for handling; thus, they are closed to research use.

    Arrangement

    The arrangement of the collection is chronological (1927-1960).
