Newspapers and newspaper history

The Michigan Historical Collections has a large collection of newspaper titles. The great majority were printed in Michigan, but a few are from other states and countries. Most of the non-Michigan newspapers were published by or for Michigan soldiers during various wars.

A checklist of newspaper titles in the collection, arranged by decade and within decades by place of publication, is found by following the links below. For each decade, Michigan newspapers are listed first, followed by newspapers printed in other places.

For many of the newspaper titles the library holds only one or a few issues, not a complete file. Complete, detailed, information about which issues are in the collection is found in the MIRLYN online catalog, under the title of each newspaper.
