The Tipton Harriers historian/archivist, Chris Holloway has converted these newspapers to digital format and given them to the BMAF to publicize. He says that they continued in A3 newspaper format until #39 in 1996 and he is on the lookout for a copy of them to add to his collection.  He is also missing some of the old editions of Masters Athletics magazine: # 62-64, 80, 83-103. Please contact me if you can help him with any of the missing issues.
