If your photo appeared in the Augusta newspapers in the 1950s or early 1960s, there was a good chance one of these men took it. In those days after World War II, the newspapers did not have staff photographers, but relied on private contractors, who conveniently had an office in the News Building on Broad Street. Robert Symms was probably the best known. Not only did he live the longest, his warm personality and active community service touched thousands until his death in 2014.
My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it. I was looking for beet juice. I had been dispatched on this mission when my mother could not find it at her favorite grocery. “You’re taller and can read the labels on the higher shelves,” she explained. The juice assignment had followed a suggestion by my sister who had either read something about it on the internet or seen it advertised on cable TV, two sources valued for product veracity.
Many said Forrest Turner was Georgia’s most famous prison escape artist of the 20th century. During the 1930s the debonair young man, called “movie star” handsome by reporters, couldn’t stay out of trouble any more than he could stay behind bars. He was credited with 11 escapes. In a story Forrest told in varying versions over the years, he first experienced incarceration in 1934 after being found with a friend’s car that turned out to be stolen.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
