Brewster Standard On Line 
The Brewster Public Library is pleased and proud to offer the online edition of the Brewster Standard. The Brewster Standard was the newspaper which covered the Village of Brewster and the Town of Southeast from 1870 to 1982 when Emerson Addis, a young printer, came from Appleton, Wisconsin to start a new newspaper.  It not only reported news from Brewster and Southeast, but also Tilly Foster, Sodom, Patterson, Carmel, Mahopac, Somers, North Salem, Croton Falls and Danbury, Connecticut.  Many people eagerly awaited the weekly edition of the Brewster Standard to see if their births, wedding or other events in their lives were printed. Emerson Addis and his daughter, Marjorie, known as “Marj” to all, did most of the writing, editing, printing and delivering of the Standard from 1870 until 1982 when fire destroyed the building on Main Street. Original print copies of the Brewster Standard are being housed at the Putnam County Historian's office located at 68 Marvin Avenue in Brewster.
