Jill Schramm, “Health Workers Vaccinated,” Minot Daily News, March 25, 2003, 5A.

“Forgotten Treasures to be Auctioned in Minnesota,” The Forum (Fargo, North Dakota-Moorhead, Minnesota), March 19, 2003, C15.

Note: Chicago Manual of Style does not insist on page numbers, saying that there are so many different editions, each with slightly different layout, that it doesn’t make sense. Well, for the New York Times or the Chicago Sun-Times, maybe, but two or more editions have been factors only part of the time for North Dakota’s largest cities’ newspapers. At various times, the Fargo Forum (now known as The Forum), the Bismarck Tribune, the Devils Lake newspaper, and the Grand Forks Herald, for example, had morning and evening editions, and some of these editions have different titles, if the citer is careful to cite the title exactly as given.

One can give the edition, followed by page number, at the close of a newspaper-article citation, if one has this information. For example, such a citation would end as, morning edition, 39. When citing an article in a special section or special centennial or other anniversary special edition, please include such edition information just before the page number. The archivists, librarians, and editors at the State Historical Society prefer that all North Dakota newspaper-article citations give the page number (and if applicable, section letter or number) that an article appears on.
