Chronicling America & Michigan Digital Newspaper Project

Chronicling America is a website providing information about and access to select historical newspaper pages. It is produced by the National Digital Newspaper Program, a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress. The Clarke Historical Library at Central Michigan University was chosen to partner with the National Digital Newspaper Program and with financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, has expanded the number of Michigan newspapers freely available online.

Chronicling America offers readers a chance to learn about the lives of people from Michigan and from around the country through the pages of local newspapers published between 1836 and 1922. The Clarke’s Michigan Digital Newspaper Portal connects to other online Michigan newspapers and is found at . Additional freely available papers digitized by the Clarke Historical Library can be found at
