A collection of newspaper clippings with dates ranging from April 28, 1953, to June 8, 1954. Clippings are arranged in chronological order. During this time Michael DeCiantis was serving as the West Warwick Town Solicitor. Scrapbook 9 covers DeCiantis' efforts to end the water rate hike, and other developments in West Warwick politics. Revisions to shellfishing laws and criminal cases related to shellfishing are also featured often. Some pages have articles that obscure other items on the same page. In this case, the same page has been shot multiple times to show all content.
