This supplement contains many photographs, and articles of the
era ot 1900 to 1920. TUe eeutlon was designed to give our readers a
glimpse of the past, as well as a look into the future.
No attempt was made to give complete coverage to any one phase
of the life in Haywood, such as schools or churches. It would have
been physically impossible to have done that. ,
This supplement was scheduled to have come out in late Febru
ary, but circumstances over which wie had no control, such as the
"flu" bug, and other obstacles, prevented the original publication date
from being met.
The staff of The Mountaineer have packed into this 48-page sup
plement a lot of interesting material, and no doubt, the paper will be
kept for many years to come, as a souvenir of the days of Haywnod
