Canal Record Newspaper

Stories from the United States' relationship with the Panama Canal, in celebration of its centenary

The Panama Canal Record was a weekly newspaper written and distributed by the Canal’s American administration.  Its purpose was to motivate and create brotherhood between canal workers.  During the French Canal construction, there was a similar initiative, Bulletin du Canal Interoceanique.  TheCanal Record not only provided information about the construction situation  but also about shows, dances and sport events.  Workers enrolled in the Gold Roll received a free copy.  Everyone else had to purchase it for five cents.
