Arizona Historical Digital Newspapers
Arizona's first newspaper, The Weekly Arizonian out of Tubac, started publication in 1859. During 1859-1922, newspapers documented the many significant historical events that had an enormous impact on the state and are central to the development and identity of Arizona.
- Arizona's entry into the Union on February 14, 1912 which had been proposed as early as 1863 (together with New Mexico).
- Water rights and droughts and the ensuing political, cultural, and economic underpinnings of these events.
- Ranching, mining and rail roads and the resulting labor, ethnic, economic, and land-use issues.
- Women in political and social movements, such as the right to vote November 1912 and prohibition in 1915.
- Border issues with Mexico.
- The early years of the state's tourism industry, and the work of entrepreneurs like Fred Harvey.
- Federal presence, such as military camps for the Indian wars, reclamation money for dams, irrigation, and agricultural subsidies.
- The development of communities and business.
- Famous and infamous Arizonians.
The years 1880-1922 represent a time when Arizona grew up. A broad documentation of this valuable history can be found in the newspapers of the day. In accordance with their mission to ensure that Arizona's history is documented and preserved, and in joint effort with the National Endowment for the Humanities and Library of Congress, The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records is proud to contribute to the National Digital Newspaper Program by digitizing select Arizona newspaper titles from this vital time in history in preparation for global online access.
The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) is a joint effort between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress. This is a long term endeavor aimed at creating a nationwide online digital database for historic newspapers published between 1836 and 1922. This searchable database, located at the Library of Congress' Chronicling America website, provides public access to scanned newspapers and offers information about each publication.
