Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers
If you’ve ever dreamed of reading the January 2, 1900 edition of Paris, Kentucky’s “Bourbon News”, this site will offer a form of wish fulfillment. This newspaper (and many others) are part of the Chronicling America website, which was produced by the National Digital Newspaper Program. The program is the result of a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress. In the “View” section of the site, visitors can view a range of newspapers from 1880 to 1910 from ten different states, including Utah, Virginia, Nebraska, and Minnesota. Visitors can use their search engine to perform detailed searches across the collection, and if they don’t find what they are looking for, they can click on over to the “Find” area. Here, visitors can find general publication information about thousands of current and defunct publications organized by newspaper title.
