Here are some guides and directories to historical American newspapers that are available online and include information on their political affiliations. To my knowledge, none of the major collections of digitized newspapers make any attempt to inform researchers about the political perspectives of the journals they are accessing.

CLARENCE: American Antiquarian Society newspaper holdings database

 Rowell’s & Ayer’s American Newspaper Directories, 1869-1920: from Library of Congress

 Rowell’s and Ayer’s All-In-One Search, from University of North Texas

 Online newspaper guides from American Antiquarian Society

 U.S. Newspaper Directory, 1690-Present (a search page: includes “Labor Press” and “Ethnicity Press” among search parameters, so researcher can search by occupational or ethnic group affiliation, but not party or religion — hmmm)

Mapping Journalism’s Voyage West (Stanford University, Bill Lane Center for the American West)

 Zotero groups (in progress bibliographies)


Printer Relocation During the Revolutionary War (via Joseph M. Adelman)

  J.C.G. Kennedy, Catalogue of the Newspapers and Periodicals Published in the United States: Showing the Town and County in Which the Same Are Published, How Often Issued, Their Character, and Circulation (1852)

 Isaiah Thomas’s lists of newspapers published in 1775 & 1810, from History of Printing, Volume 2

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some
    time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog
    and I look forward to your new updates.
