The Perry Chief has been the town's paper since1874. For decades the Perry High Telital anchored the back page of the Saturday Perry Chief and, for much of that time, was presided over by Leonard Rossman, who trained generations of reporters. This room honors local newspapers and those who keep their standards high.
Once that you enter this room you're greeted by a 1930s feel of being inside a hard working jounalist's office. Artifacts throughout the room consist of manual typewriter, antique camera, an early radio, and an old telephone. Above the bed you'll notice 3 photos that illustrate First Amendment cases that appeared in the Des Moines Register. One of these photographs later went on to win a Pulitzer Prize.
