We are happy to announce that IUPUI’s Center for Digital Scholarship has recently made available 29 years of the Indianapolis News from 1869-1897. They plan to eventually complete digitizing issues through 1922.
You can access the digitized issues here.
The News began publication in 1869 as a Republican leaning, although officially independent, newspaper. Its circulations outpaced its long-time rivals the Sentinel and the Journal by the late 19th and early 20th century. The News consolidated with the Star in 1948, but continued to be issued as a separate title. The News ceased publication in 1999.
