Reuters computer printouts

Scope and Content

This series mainly comprises of computer printouts and teleprinter messages of Reuters articles, ‘World Media Comments’, which describe what Reuters journalists have recently reported, article timings, quality logs and lists of the best articles of the week. The messages are often abbreviated and some have little context. Most of the messages and printouts relate to stories covered by Anthony Goodman concerning the United Nations and the Middle East, including the 1988 Gulf ceasefire. The series also contains telexes, newspaper articles, press releases and other related material. The papers contain information about how Reuters wished news stories to be covered. All the items were originally grouped together in an envelope.
