Complimentary Newspaper Collection

For more than one hundred years, the State Historical Society of Missouri and the Missouri press, through the Missouri Press Association, have been partners in preserving Missouri newspapers. Publishers and editors early recognition of the value of preserving their publications helped build the Society’s unrivalled newspaper collection.

Currently more than 300 different newspapers published in Missouri – at least one newspaper from each of the 114 Missouri counties – continue to build the State Historical Society’s valuable Newspaper Collection. The newspapers that provide complimentary subscriptions to the Society are listed in alphabetical order by the city of publication. The Society microfilms these newspapers to ensure enduring access to these records and provides reference services to newspaper researchers through the Newspaper Collection

The State Historical Society of Missouri gratefully salutes the newspaper men and women who preserve today’s newspapers as a resource for tomorrow’s history.
