Historic Essays

Historical essays are being written for newspaper titles in Historic Oregon Newspapers.

Turnbull's History of Oregon Newspapers was a valuable source for much of the information. Although considered a major historical resource, it is not without errors. Please contact us if you have additional information on a title or know of any corrections to be made.

Versions of these essays for titles that are part of the National Digital Newspaper Program are available at Chronicling America. The versions on Historic Oregon Newspapers may be longer versions of those essays and formatted for University of Oregon style guidelines.
