NOTE:  "The list of newspaper indexes which you sent to us, with the assumption that these existed at LAPL, is based on erroneous information. All of these titles were indexed in the Harkness file, to which you also refer, with the exception of the Herald-Examiner for which no index exists. The Harkness file itself, which was a WPA project of the thirties, is not a newspaper index. It is a local history index based on the newspapers listed, with highly selective citations. In no sense it it a real index to the papers used, only items considered to be of major local historical interest were picked up. It has been of dubious value to us. The time and effort could have been much better expended in trying to make a reasonably complete index of just one local newspaper, To list the Harkness file in any bibliography of newspaper indexes would hence be inappropriate and misleading."
