The Archive of American Journalism began as a private collection of the long-neglected, hard-to-find works of major American journalists. We now have five books in print, four new books in production for 2016, and an online compilation of more than 4,000 freely accessible works by 13 major American authors. This innovative resource presents all articles with their original titles and format, and unabridged. The collection is organized by author and in chronological order for the ease of students, teachers, historians and casual readers. With a title or date, users can access a full-text, printable PDF of any article within seconds. (We are now in the process of converting our PDFs to more user-friendly and visually inviting WordPress pages.) Valuable time used in browsing “sponsored” search engines, thumbing through confusing bibliographies, and wandering the dusty halls of labyrinthine academic libraries can instead be spent reading, studying and enjoying the original texts.
We’re here to inform and entertain. The Archive is available for students, teachers, researchers and casual readers free of charge and free of interruption. We welcome your comments, advice, and opinions, and we will gratefully accept and acknowledge donations to our ongoing mission: creating the world’s most interesting and useful historic journalism resource.
