Newspaper Collections

With a few exceptions, the newspapers maintained in the Department of Special Collections and University Archives consist of original newspapers printed on rag paper prior to 1880. More comprehensive spans of these newspapers are usually available on microfilm or via electronic sources, but archivists have retained this limited collection for instructional and exhibition purposes. A few of these newspapers represent the earliest gifts to the Marquette College Library. The newspapers within this inventory have been cataloged in MARQCAT, the Raynor Memorial Libraries' electronic catalog.

Newspapers collected and preserved as a part of a larger archival collection are not listed within this checklist. Please visit the online inventories for processed manuscript collections to learn more about these holdings. Furthermore, newspapers edited by Marquette University students are maintained by the University Archives. An inventory of student newspapers is also available online.
