Scotsman, 1817-1950

Alternative Titles
ProQuest Historical Newspapers

When it was founded in 1817, The Scotsman was so radical that it was considered “incendiary.” Today, it continues to provide an independent voice and uniquely Scottish analysis of local and global events.

From the death of Sir Walter Scott to the death of Abraham Lincoln, from the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to the fashion for tea salons in Victorian Glasgow, and from the Catholic Emancipation Bill to the crash of the U.S. stock market, The Scotsman captured the unprecedented turmoil and change occurring on both sides of the Atlantic during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Because The Scotsman, part of ProQuest Historical Newspapers™, is delivered on the same platform as The Guardian, The Observer, The Irish Times, and Weekly Irish Times, researchers can easily compare and contrast facts and opinions conveyed in these newspapers. The result is a more comprehensive understanding of the modern history of the British Isles and Ireland.
