The Restoration of Nell Nelson

If you are new to the project please refer to our Project Basics Wiki and our Codebook)!

This is a public work space for experimenting with the coding and digitization of the "City Slave Girls" series printed in the Chicago Times, 1888.

The original publication in the Chicago Times and was authored by Helen Cusack under the pseudonym Nell Nelson.
After the original newspaper publication there were two books published within the same year that included edited, abridged versions of the series. (There is also evidence that the series was republished in New York's World newspaper the following year.)

Primary Sources:

Chicago Times - 1888 - Nell Nelson
White Slave Girls of America - 1888 - McEnnis
Whites Slave Girls - 1888 - Unknown Editor / Barkley Publication
