Item or Series Title Virgil Vandenburg Collection
Catalog Number 2014-06-002
Description This collection was generated by Lansing publisher and sports enthusiast Virgil Vandenburg primarily during the time he published the "Lansing Labor News" and the "Capitol Bulletin." There is a great deal of advertising related correspondence and sample material. Virgil Vandenburg was involved in recreation-league athletics and especially became a leader in chess activities, though his chess related information is not strongly represented in the collection. The collection includes considerable automotive industry promotional material, information on local, state, and federal labor/civil service issues, other sample publications, information on local clubs and organizations, and some personal material. There are runs of alphabetical subject and correspondence files, and a section of portrait photographs included in the collection as well.
