    Administrative history

    The Peterborough Common Press was a self-supporting weekly community newspaper covering Peterborough and surrounding areas. It was run by Harry Underwood and Clifford Maynes and operated only in the 1970's. (Taken from: "Peterborough The Electric City." Windsor Publications: The Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, 1987.) The "Common Press" invited members of the public to submit articles, letters, ideas and time to help support itself. It was printed by the Quinte Web Press in Tweed using a photo-offset technique.(Taken from: "The Peterborough Common Press." November 2, 1976.)
