79 Volumes of the Davis Enterprise Free to Caring Recipient (278)

1.
 In January, 2001, I became the owner of 79 bound volumes of the Davis Enterprise covering the years 1966-83. 
Viewed as a single object -- a collection -- it is some 20 inches tall, consumes more than 20 feet of shelf space and weighs upwards of a thousand pounds. Stacked on their sides in piles, the volumes are several feet tall and fill the bed of a small pickup truck.
A sense of the collection’s scale and heft can be inferred from the accompanying three snapshots.
For many years, the collection has been installed on shelves in a storage building at my home and it was an invaluable resource in my Davis history research. But, time has passed and I no longer use it or have any plans to do so.
Davis Enterprise editor Debbie Davis gave me the collection and I am now offering it gratis to someone willing to receive and to care for it.
