Chronicling America's Newspapers
"Chronicling America" is the first installment of The National Digital Newspaper Program (sponsored by the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities). Browse entire issues, and search full-text archives from papers in a handful of states between 1900-1910. It's an impressive time capsule to news (and news design) from 100+ years ago. What lessons can we learn? Well, if you're concerned about the slippery slope of front-page advertising, then check out the Bourbon News in Bourbon, KY from 1903.
