Issues reproduced: Vol. 1, no. 1 (Aug. 28, 1920)-v. 1, no. 5 (Oct. 23, 1920)
Bound in with the publication is a clipping from the Toronto Globe from Sept. 2[4th, 1920] announcing "Spinal patients publish paper: bedridden men print their own news and get out bright sheet". The clipping states that "... a new publication making its appearance weekly in Toronto has a much great significance than the mere size of its simple, folded sheet would imply ... Its office is 'on the roof' of the Dominion Orthopedic Hospital on Christie street, where about 25 men, spinal cases, lie flat on their backs and see life only through the swivel mirrors suspended above them."
Bound in with the publication is also a letter dated Oct. 12th, 1920 from Hamilton & Mills to J.A. Mitchell (Asst. Archivist, Public Archives of Canada) stating: "We have been in bed for upwards of two years and having so much spare time on our hands we naturally must find some outlet for the resultant store of concentrated devilment. This finally led to the production of the 'Hamilton-Mills Weekly'. Neither of us have had any experience along this line and the whole thing is done chiefly for our own amusement. We have to thank Mr. A. H. Rutter and the Red Cross Society, of which he is president, for everything connected with the printing and we feel that if anyone besides ourselves gets any amusement from it we will feel deeply repaid for our efforts."
