Administrative history

The Winnipeg Citizen was published as an anti-labour paper by the Citizens Committee of 1000 during the Winnipeg General Strike in 1919. The paper reappeared between 1948 and 1949 in response to the typographical union's strike against the other Winnipeg newspapers. The first paper was published the morning of March 1, 1948. The paper continued its production run until April 13, 1949.

Custodial history

Several issues of the Citizen were purchased by University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1987. Another issue was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Hugh Gunn in 1988.
