Historical news

Newspapers are a wonderful resource for historical research. Historians spend long hours browsing through runs of newspapers in paper or microfilm format. Fortunately, there are now some online newspaper archives that simplify this process:

Coverage includes:

  • The New York Times (1851-2006)
  • The Guardian (1821-2003)
  • The Observer (1791-2003)
  • Washington Post (1877-1993)
  • Times of India (1838-2001).

If the newspaper has not been digitised, it might be available in microfilm .
