Scrapbook: Hugh Cudlipp, Tom Clarke

I'm still sorting through some old reference books, which will be heading onto eBay next week hopefully. Sometimes I find little scraps tucked into the pages, bookmarks, or even newspaper clippings. Here are a couple I found over the weekend.

First up, an obituary from the Daily Mirror, 18 May 1998. Hugh Cudlipp was editor of that paper for decades. My dad read the Mirror and I did, too, although a lot of that was down to habit and a desire to keep reading Garth, The Perishers, and Jane.

Then there's a smaller obit for Tom Clarke, who edited various papers in the 1920s and 1930s. This I found in his book on Lord Northcliffe, which I'll be selling. Lastly, a rate card from the Sunday Dispatch, dated July 1959. Now you know how much a page of advertising would have cost you.
