"Cover Story" piece on acclaimed novelist Nicholson Baker of South Berwick, who has bought about 11,000 volumes of old newspapers dating from 1866 to the 1970s. Baker is storing the papers in a warehouse in Rollinsford, N.H., under the aegis of the American Newspaper Repository, a nonprofit organization he founded with his wife, Margaret Brentano. In all it cost $150,000 to buy the papers from the British Library and $22,000 to ship them from Colindale, England, to New Hampshire. Baker believes that long runs of newspapers in hard copy constitute a cultural resource that's irreplaceable by any other medium.
