800 Vine St
Cincinnati OH 45202
Telephone: (513) 369-6000
AVAILABILITY:  Copies of the index may be used in the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. In addition, a copy of this and other Ohio WPA indexes will be found in the library of the Ohio Historical Society (I-71 & 17th Ave; Columbus OH 43211).
SCOPE OF INDEX:  A selective index of Ohio news and opinion compiled from the Final Edition of the Cincinnati Enquirer and intended as a key or guide and not as a digest or summary. However, the information given will often be found adequate without reference to the newspaper or to the microfilm copy. Since the New York Times cover national and foreign news, such material has been omitted from this index. Other omissions are as follows: Advertisments; Announcements of routine meetings of social, fraternal, and minor political organizations; Announcements of routine sports events; Commercial and promotional publicity on topics such as real estate, resorts and automobiles; Features or columns dealing with trivia, recapitulations of news, or non-news educational topics; Lists which appear regularly such as vital statistics, incorporations, radio programs, time tables, theater schedules, stock and bond quotations and prices; Non-news items relating to material such as recipes, menues, household hints, budgets, care of pets, care of babies, personal adornment, patterns, fashons, advice to the lovelorn, gardening, games and hobbies; Poetry and fiction; Reprints; Reviews of burlesque and radio performances; Society personals and minor comings and goings; Touring maps and information.
FORMAT OF INDEX:  Index entries are arranged alphabetically under subjects and proper names. In most instances material has been filed under specific rather than than general headings. Under subject headings, the entries are arranged in chronological order. In a few instances, where material is entered only under general headings (e.g., BOOKS, MOTION PICTURES, BIRTHS, DEATHS, MARRIAGES), the entries are arranged alphabetically rather than chronologically. Each entry consists of the headline or other brief description, plus the citation (month, day, page and column). Physically, the indexes were issued in five annual volumes (1934-1938). The page size is 7x10 inches and there are two columns per page. There is a three page list of abbreviations used in the index at the front of each volume.
SIZE OF INDEX:  Five annual volumes totaling 120,939 entries and 1,124 pages.
