Early American Newspapers, Series  III, 1829-1922

Comprehensive coverage of the mid- to late 19th century and  beyond 

Series III of Early American Newspapers complements  _Series  I_ 
(http://www.readex.com/readex/product.cfm?product=10)  and _Series  II_ 
(http://www.readex.com/readex/product.cfm?product=11)  by offering fully searchable digital 
facsimiles of several  hundred thousand issues from more than 125 significant 
19th- and  20th-century newspapers, totaling more than one million pages. Like 
other  Early American Newspapers series, it is based primarily on the  holdings 
of the American Antiquarian Society (AAS), which houses a  comprehensive 
collection of American newspapers through 1876.  Additionally, both Series II and 
Series III include  titles from the acclaimed newspaper collections of the 
Wisconsin  Historical Society, the Library of Congress and other organizations, and 
 they offer newspapers from all 50 present states. 
Focus on titles from the latter half of the  19th century
The titles in Series III focus on  the period between 1861 to 1900. Like 
Series II, Series  III provides in-depth coverage of the mid-19th century and the 
Civil  War, but Series III also focuses on Reconstruction, the Gilded  Age, 
the Progressive Era and beyond. Between 1861 and 1900, the number and  size of 
newspapers continued to grow rapidly, as the adoption of the  telegraph and the 
prevalence of the Associated Press contributed to a  second transformation of 
the newspaper industry in the 19th century.  Westward expansion and the penny 
press continued to help create thousands  of local newspapers, and daily 
editions replaced many weeklies.  
Superior bibliographic  control
Like Series I and II,  Series III offers many significant titles listed in 
Clarence S.  Brigham’s “History and Bibliography of American Newspapers, 
1690-1820” and  other authoritative bibliographies. Bibliographic control for Series 
 III’s post-1820 titles comes from Winifred Gregory’s “American  Newspapers 
1821-1936: A Union List of Files Available in the United States  and Canada.” 
Additionally, a distinguished academic advisory board of  librarians, curators 
and historians supervised the title selection  process, considering the 
historical significance of each newspaper and the  diverse political positions of 
the period.  
A robust, integrated resource  
As part of the America’s Historical Newspapers  collection, Early American 
Newspapers, Series III, 1829-1922  shares a common interface with Early American 
Newspapers, Series  II, 1690-1876 and Early American Newspapers, Series II,  
1758-1900. Additionally, Series III is cross-searchable with  all other Readex 
Archive of Americana collections.
