Historical U.S. College and High School Student Newspapers Online

Picture


As you know, if you have visited this site previously, I have been presenting historical newspaper links to Free collections in the U.S. over the past few years, They have been presented by state, by ethnicity, by religion, etc. To see all these collections, click on the Newspaper Links tab at the top of this web page.

An emerging substantial sub-collection if you will, is student publications. The state of North Carolina has collected all these in one list of links.  But the other states have not, and they are strewn throughout all the other lists of collections and databases.

Since the college/university experience is a sizable part of one’s life, it makes sense when we are searching for ancestor information, that we include these student publications in our research.  Below is a list of links, presented by state and institution that are free for you to search.

Colleges, universities, specialty schools and even some high school newspapers are included in this list. Hopefully researching these collections will uncover some interesting facts and stories about your ancestors while they were a student.

This is a very long list of links, since all 50 states and DC are presented in one article.  So, please be patient.

Please Note – some of these have only recent archives because they likely have not had the funding to digitize their older issues of the student newspapers. But the majority do have digitized archives of their older issues (some as far back as the 1850’s), and of course, like all digitized collections there may be date gaps. I frankly was pleasantly surprised that there were as many robust digital archives as there are. This is a rapidly expanding area of newspaper digitization, so the list will change frequently. And as always, I am sure that I missed some. Please let me know links of ones that I have missed in the Comments section.

Please Note – I have added several hundred high school newspapers to the lists below.Unfortunately, again likely because of budget constraints, the majority do not have many issues from the 20th century, but several do.

For your information, these Student Collections are also included in the state Historical Newspaper Link Summaries that I regularly update.
