Index to past News & Views Articles

We currently do not have access to all issues of the News & Views. As time permits, we will add more articles to the list below and will attempt to include other articles of interest to members.

Not every issue of the News & Views contained articles that will be reproduced on this web site. Many issues contained only reports from glass shows or club meetings, and many contained reviews of that year's Convention or articles leading up to the Convention. Such articles have not been transferred to the web site. Most of the articles that will be posted here are related to glass companies, glass patterns or glass manufacture. Occasionally you'll find an article related to depression-era pottery as well.

Note that some of the articles from the earlier issues were relatively short. At the time, the newsletter was small and most likely was intentionally kept that way to reduce postage costs. If an article had accompanying pictures (black and white, of course), they will be transferred to the web article if the copy is at all legible. In some cases, we have augmented the articles with a more recent color photo.

We also have a search engine which will allow you to search all of the articles on the NDGA site. You simply enter a word, such as "cherry blossom," "Akro Agate," "uranium" or "Homer Laughlin" and the search engine will return all articles containing your keyword or phrase. It doesn't matter if you enter the words in upper case or lower case - the search is not case sensitive, but it does work on an exact match, so be sure you spell your search keyword correctly.
