Next TSLA Workshop: A Retrospective on ‘The Nashville Retrospect’
(Published: May 27, 2014)
Newspapers are sometimes called the first drafts of history. And for the last five years, Allen Forkum has been trying to make sure Nashvillians don’t forget what those first drafts looked like.
Forkum is the editor and publisher of The Nashville Retrospect, a monthly publication that reprints historic articles from Middle Tennessee newspapers, some of which date back 200 years or more. The Nashville Retrospect also features essays by local historians and remembrances from longtime residents.
