Notes: This weekly Gridiron is chiefly interesting as an example of partisan journalism of the day, and is thought to be the earliest humorous publication west of the Ohio river. Focusing strongly on local affairs, it promised to be "the unceasing and indefatigable advocate and friend of virtuous and moral citizens ... and the continued and determined tormenter of all "evil doers." Although largely made up of abusive political satire, it also contained some literature, poetry and humor, including puns, anecdotes, and riddles. It appears to have been the product of a campaign for election to Congress between Judge Joseph H. Crane and Dr. William Blodget, and although Blodget is the main target, many prominent Daytonians are also attacked and thus the Gridiron is important as a source on the history of the Miami area. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
