Texas Historical Newspapers: 1836-1985
"Students of Texas history now have access to Texas Historical Newspapers with full-text articles from 41 Texas newspapers published between 1836 and 1985. The collection includes newspapers from major cities, such as Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Galveston, Houston, and San Antonio, as well as smaller towns like Clarksville, Huntsville, Nacogdoches, and Palestine. It even includes one issue of the early Spanish-language newspaper, Gaceta de Texas (1813). Coverage of the Dallas Morning News extends from 1885 to 1985. Overall, Texas Historical Newspapers has strong coverage of newspapers from the periods of the Texas Republic, early statehood, Reconstruction, and the early twentieth century.
Look for Texas Historical Newspapers under History Databases or News Databases on the UHD Library website. "
While a wonderful resource, it is limited to students, faculty, etc. Hmm, I wonder if general public folks who walk into the UHD can use the system or is it available through the library terminals without passwords, etc.
