Overview

No single file in existence appears to have the complete run of Among the Clouds, Mount Washington's famous daily newspaper established on the summit of New England's tallest mountain. This collection represents the combined efforts of the Gorham, New Hampshire Public Library; the New Hampshire Historical Society; the Appalachian Club; the Northeastern University Library; the Dartmouth College Library; and two private collections.

Mount Washington's Indian name was Agiocochook, which aptly means "home of the Great Spirit." In the early and middle 1800s this rustic White Mountain region of New Hampshire was often visited by famous writers such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau. Thoreau wrote: "I see the stanzas arise around me, verse upon verse, far and near, like the mountains from Agiocochook, not all having a terrestrial existence yet, even as some of them may be clouds."

Before the turn of the century, the area became a fashionable resort that enjoyed a popularity that endured until World War I.

Included in the newspaper collection are editions from July 20, 1877, to September 14, 1917, plus a souvenir issue.
