Some of the most frequently covered subjects are the history of Washington, DC, and its surroundings; mining and engineering; Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover; arts and crafts; poetry; aviation via planes and dirigibles, including clippings about the Graf Zeppelin and Charles Lindberg; the explorer Robert Byrd; and the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb.
