Newspapers - Chronological (1848-1959)


Congressman Poage saved newspapers he believed had "historic" headlines. These 278 papers have been listed chronologically but are filed the way Poage had them. The date, major headline and box number are also listed. While the majority of these papers are from the 1960s and 1970s, there are a few earlier ones. Two issues of the Woodville, Mississippi Republican are from 1848 and 1881 and one issue of the Jackson, MS Weekly Clarion is also from 1881. The Hindenburg tragedy is covered in the Philadephia Record of May 7, 1937. The assassination of John F. Kennedy issues have been saved as well as those covering the death of Lyndon B. Johnson. Other issues cover city centennials and significant anniversaries of Texas towns. The headlines stories of most of these newspapers could be photocopies and the originals discarded or offered to The Texas Collection.
