A collection of newspaper clippings with dates ranging from March 1961 to October 1961. This scrapbook has been identified as Scrapbook 21B as it features clippings published after October of 1960 and before June of 1961. Although many dates featured in this scrapbook overlap with dates featured in Scrapbook 21 and Scrapbook 22, this scrapbook focuses solely on talks of implementing a State Income Tax and the discourse that followed the proposal. While state legislators claimed the tax would benefit Rhode Island, much of the general public remained vocal in their opposition. Some pages featured in this scrapbook have articles that obscure other items on the page. In this case, the same page has been shot multiple times to show all content.
