Good to know. Does Signe happen to remember which library the microfilm came from?

The copy I used is the standard UMI microfilm that's been sold to libraries all over the country. In this post for convenience I used the ProQuest image, but it's identical to the microfilm from the Duke library. ProQuest of course owns UMI, and the edition distributed by UMI was filmed in 1968 by the U of Chicago Library.

Gary, when I was researching the 1923 NNL season, there was an issue of the Defender missing from the microfilm -- it included several games between Chicago and Detroit that had not made the daily papers -- but another SABR member, Signe Knutson, found the issue.

While I believe it was still on microfilm, and may have been copied from the same set of originals, I can tell you for certain that there are more than one copy of microfilm around. It may simply be that you got the copy that circulates for interlibrary loan, while Signe got hers at a Chicago library from a non-circulating copy.
