McCools in historic newspapers

By now, you know that I am a fanatic about finding information about McCools. I do tons of family history research and lots of just messing around. Today, I revisited the Library of Congress’ website. I found an area where they have digitized old newspapers. This is the direct link: http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/search/pages/ You can also get to it by going to loc.gov, clicking on Historic Newspapers, then clicking on Search Pages.

Of course, my first search was for “McCool” in all of the newspapers. Wow, what a collection. It has 804 results; each result is an article or ad in a historic newspaper. Fantastic. Shall I say, very McCool. Just on the first page of 10 results, there are two McCool Typewriter ads and an article about a “high roller” named McCool. I wanted to post it here so that others know about it and so that I can easily find it again. My organization is not A++.

Here is the direct link to the results:
