Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers

The Library of Congress and the National Endowment of the Humanities have launched a website of America's historic newspapers.
"This site allows you to search and view newspaper pages from 1880-1922 and find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present. Chronicling America is sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). "

The New York newspapers available are: The Evening World (1887-1931), New York Tribune (1866-1924), and The Sun (1833-1916).

It is a long term project to develop Internet based, searchable historic newspapers from the U.S. Visit the site at and check back often for added contact.
