Inventory of Northwest Runner

IMAG0190

UPDATE: 6/4 notes inline with back issue notes thanks to Glenn Tachiyama. If I can pool Glenn’s issues with the issues I already have, this would be a complete collection from 1983-present.

To start out the project, I took an inventory of the issues I gathered from Martin. I’m still collecting details on what formats the various back issues are in, but at a high level:

  • the oldest issues are only available in the print copies (which I have)
  • newer issues (from something like 2000ish on) are available in some digital format

So the right thing to do is to scan the oldest issues and try to work with the digital format of the new issues and make directly consumable digital copies of those.

I don’t have access to the earliest volumes. ย These date to the early 1970’s and if anyone has access to these, I would be very happy to digitize them, but I’m going to assume they are lost forever. ย Here’s a stock of what I HAVE or what is MISSING:

  • Volumes 1-3: all missing
  • Volume 4: HAVE issues 5, 6, 7, and 10
  • Volume 5: HAVE issues 2, 5
  • Volume 6: MISSING 3, 5, 7, 11
  • Volume 7: MISSING 2
  • …note – all future volumes / years indicate issues that are MISSING…
  • Volume 8: 7, 10+
  • Volume 9 / 1981 (volume numbering changed this year): 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, December
  • 1982: May –>ย Glenn is also missing May, issue never printed?
