Description

Newspaper Archive: Academic Library Edition is a database of mainly English-language historical newspapers starting from 1607 and going to the present.  The database consists of digital images of original newspaper pages scanned from microfilm, which have been processed with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to permit searching by keyword.  The quality of the scanned images, and hence the accuracy of the keyword searching, varies widely.

The largest number of holdings is from 1880-2010 and is mainly from the United States, Canada, England, and Ireland, although there are some newspapers from other countries in other languages.  More information about the holdings is at http://newspaperarchive.com/.  

Please note:  The holdings will list broad ranges of dates but NewspaperArchive.com does not necessarily contain all the issues in that time period.  For instance, it lists the holding for Chicago’s News Journal as 1923-1977, yet has no issues from 1929 to 1968.  Use the Browse tab to find more precise holdings information for specific titles.

To limit results to a particular state in America, you must first choose the United States as a country, and then the state you would like to search.

Description

The Detroit Free Press published its first edition before Michigan entered statehood and when wild animals outnumbered the people living in the city. Its editor assigned a writer to walk the waterfront and record the shipping news each day, creating the first news “beat.” The Free Press also was the first U.S. newspaper to print a regular Sunday edition and the first to publish court testimony. It sent reporters to Civil War battlefields to describe the action, set up a Washington bureau to report on politics, and was the first American newspaper published in Europe when it began a London edition in 1881.


The Detroit Free Press witnessed the arrival of former slaves and the influx of Polish, German, Irish, and Italian immigrants to Michigan. It watched the mining and timber industries bring industry and wealth to the state. The publication witnessed the birth of the automotive industry and products such as Vernors Ginger Ale and Faygo pop. And, it followed Detroit Tiger’s baseball player Ty Cobb as he set record after record.
