Collection Historical Note

Benjamin Thomas began publishing Night Whirl in 1938, a weekly newspaper covering music and entertainment for the black population of St. Louis.  Within a year Thomas changed the name to Evening Whirl and began covering crime in St. Louis.  He reported on many crimes that other local newspapers did not cover.  Thomas wrote, edited, and published the paper himself until he retired in 1995.  At that time, his two sons took over the publication.  The newspaper continues today as the St. Louis Metro Evening Whirl and continues to cover crime as well as St. Louis area news and entertainment.
