Published weekly under the authority and supervision of the Isthmian Canal Commission. The Canal Record, a weekly newspaper that began under the leadership of George Washington Goethals in 1907, was designed to improve the camaraderie and morale of canal workers. This informative paper published excavation statistics that encouraged a healthy rivalry between work sites (see p. 4) and included information on social activities along the canal such as concerts, club meetings, and dances (p. 6).
