The Chatham Chatter is an informal newspaper, published roughly every two weeks in the summers (late July to early September) from 1937-1941, and one issue August 1942.  This newspaper was written, published (on a hectograph machine!) and circulated by the grandchildren of Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis.  The Milk Weed Printing Company included Louis Brandeis Gilbert (age 10 in 1937), Alice Brandeis Gilbert (age 9 in 1937), Walter Brandeis Raushenbush (age 9 in 1937), and Frank Brandeis Gilbert (age 6 1/2 in 1937). The subject matter included Chatham government and politics, Chatham summer resident gossip, yacht racing results, U.S. National politics, the Spanish Civil War, a Chatham murder, a Chatham fisherman lost at sea, Chatham parade and social events, Hitler, Mussolini, Chatham lectures and cultural events, Japan's growing war with China, and interviews with leading Chatham citizens.  The Chatham Chatter originally cost 1 cent per issue in 1937, rising to 3 cents an issue in 1941.  A summer subscription was 20 cents locally and 40 cents elsewhere.  The Chatham Chatter is available on our website in digital format and a set of the original Chatham Chatter is housed at The Atwood House & Museum in Chatham.  This is a remarkable historical record that documents a part of Chatham and U.S. History.  We thank the Raushenbush, Gilbert and Popkin families for sharing this treasure!
