    Description

    Le Phare des Lacs was founded in Watertown, NY by Alexandre Grandpré and Claude Petit in 1859, with the first edition appearing on April 28 of that year. Grandpré was the publisher while Petit served as editor. From 1868 to 1876, Claude Petit was solely responsible for publishing the weekly newspaper. Included in this collection is an advertisement that points to a Franco-American presence in Watertown and a note that suggests that the newspaperΓÇÖs readership goes beyond that city.
