Note: The early press reports contain many factual errors. Some clippings are incomplete, either because the missing portion was duplicated elsewhere or was considered not worth the cost of a another photocopy.

Some clippings have markings, in particular a diagonal line. When the clippings were originally used for research, the diagonal line indicated that the marked material could also be found verbatim in another clipping. Such markings were used to save research time of examining text which was duplicated elsewhere. This practice was eventually stopped.

Some clippings contain ethnic characterizations which are today considered offensive and unacceptable. They are included for historic purposes.
