Historic Newspapers Collection

For hundreds of years newspapers have been a reliable source for information on a local, state and national level. Until the advent of electronic media, newspapers were often the only reliable means of communicating information on a consistent basis to a large number of people. 

This collection contains historic newspapers drawn from holding institutions at Baylor University. Many were donated to the university's special collections as part of larger gifts and are too few in number to support creating an entire digital collection. This curated collection allows us to provide access to these resources without creating numerous smaller collections; therefore, the titles, eras and regions represented vary greatly from item to item.





User Notes :

The Baylor University Libraries strive to make our digital collection resources available and useful to our faculty, staff, students, alumni, researchers, and the general public. Through our Web sites, the Libraries offer broad public access to a wide range of information, including historical materials that may contain offensive language or negative stereotypes. Such materials must be viewed in the context of the relevant time period. Baylor University does not endorse the views expressed in such materials.
