Since the advent of photography in newspaper journalism, the Newport Daily News has kept the community apprized of progress, difficulties, and activities at the many Newport city schools through the use of pictures. Hundreds of such images comprise an important segment of the Daily News Collection at the Newport Historical Society. which were included in an exhibit at the Newport Historical Society in 1999-2000, are only a small number of that collection Its intent was, rather, to present an assortment of images illustrating a variety of locales, grades, and activities, curricular and extracurricular, within the city school system.
