  Details1913-1931Baltimore Municipal JournalThe Baltimore Municipal Journal was started during the administration of Mayor James H. Preston. Mayor Preston, in his annual report for 1914-15, summarized the journal's purpose as being and "excellent medium for the city's advertising" and a way to supply "to the people information as to what is being done by their city government in greater detail than they could obtain from the daily papers." The journal is rich in administrative (especially financial) detail and also contains information on notable personalities, public improvements, commercial enterprises, communities, festivals, and historic preservation efforts. There is no clear reason why the journal was discontinued. Mayor William F. Broening stated in 1930 that its publication "had been turned over to private interests"; it is possible that the increasing cost of the journal proved to be too great for both the municipal government and private publishers.BRG26-1
