THE ISLANDER II published between 1937-1938
The first page described why this was undertaken. The publication for which this is written, it, in a certain sense a rebirth or resurrection of an earlier Kelleys Island periodical called “The Islander. ”You are probably wondering what prompted us to start such a venture on Kelleys Island. There are several reasons. The first is: There is always something happening here, and the only means of communication are the tongues of the Islanders. This, as we all know, makes for an interesting conversation…Secondly: The summer people here feel that they would enjoy knowing their island neighbors more intimately….Lastly: in hopes that we might, by this little venture, start the ball rolling for a more complete year round island paper, written, published and read by and for Kelleys Island.
This newsletter contains a wealth of information and stories about people who lived on the Island almost 100 years ago!
