Researching the Phoenix
We are interested in learning more about John Bellairs’s contributions to the Phoenix, a Cambridge, Massachusetts-based weekly newspaper. It’s a long shot, we know, being almost 40 years after the fact, but that hasn’t stopped us before. Here is what we know:
- We have a copy of Bellairs’s article “Graffiti” that appeared in the debut issue on October 9, 1969.
- He was only associated with the paper for a few weeks; therefore we believe his remaining articles would be found in the October 16 and 23 issues.
- We have confirmed he had no column in the October 30 edition; however it is tempting to determine if there is anything on November 6 (we doubt it).
