From the website, “The main index generally covers the years 1878-1937, although there are selected entries for earlier and later dates. Entries include obituaries, coverage of political events, speeches, dedications, visits of foreign dignitaries and general news events. The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Boston Journal, and Boston Transcript were indexed most consistently, although there are entries for other newspapers as well. A later index, covering the years 1960 to 1983, includes articles from the Boston Globe and Boston Herald which are primarily political or governmental in nature.” Database consists of scanned index cards. Database may be browsed by subject or searched by card title/headline.

This was a database discovered in the course of the State Agency Databases project. For more links to state produced newspaper and magazine indexes, visit our Historical Newspaper and Magazine Indexes page.
