Notes This archive is comprised of The Herald for the years 1952, 1953,1955, 1956, 1957,1958, 1959, 1960, 1961,1962. (We do not have 1954.) There are also partial photocopies from the same years with the acession numbers 2006.66.1 - .3. These were copied and made available to David Contosta and CHHS by Lloyd Wells.
Mr. Wells is a significant figure in the history of Chestnut Hill from the mid 1940s' to 1976. He founded the Hill Hardware Company (with Eli Schmidt), now the Hill Company, the Chestnut Hill Parking Foundation, the Chestnut Hill Development Group, and rewrote the bylaws, creating a quasi-governmental organization with the city of Philadelphia.
Also a political activist, Mr. Wells founded the The Cymbal newspaper in competition with The Herald. The Cymbal eventually became the Local; The Herald ultimately went out of business.
