A bunch of the historical newspapers aren't listed.  I recently had
cause to want to look at back files of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (The
IBM/SAM are holding a joint convention in St. Louis this summer, and I
was helping research an article on the history of magic and conjuring in
St. Louis.  The first known performance of western-style theatrical
magic west of the Mississippi was done in St. Louis by John
Leitensdorfer in 1814, FWIW. . . . ), and am not affiliated with any
institution which subscribes.  A link to a pay-by-the-article source
would have been quite useful.

Other missing ones:

Phoenix AZ Republic (1890 - 1922)
Boston Jewish Advocate (1905 - pres)
Cincinnati Enquirer (1841 - 1922)
