Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The biggest Newark papers are the Newark Daily Advertiser (19th century) the Newark News (also known as the Newark Evening News or Newark Sunday News, 1883-1972) and the Star Ledger (became the largest paper after the News). The Newark Library has a near-complete run of all three papers.

Star Ledger has now been digitized by GenealogyBank from 1945.
