Reporter’s Notebook

circa 1973
Jim Squires Collection, Vanderbilt University Special Collections

Before iPhones or more discreet recording devices, a reporter’s notebook existed as the expected medium to make notes. This is just one of countless other reporter notebooks that Squires kept with him. Just in this one notebook, one can see the wide collection of interviews and sources that Squires documented. Squires wrote on one page: “the President is not involved in Watergate,” which speaks to the amount of journalistic digging Squires did during his investigation.
