Denson Tribune (Jerome)

The Denson Tribune was published in the Jerome concentration camp, Arkansas, from October 1942 to June 1944. Until early 1943, the paper was known as the Denson Communique. The newspaper was staffed mainly by camp inmates who wrote the articles, set the type, and printed the final copies.
