Thanks to generous support from the American Catholic Historical Society, fourteen more years of Catholic Standard & Times, spanning from 1916 to 1930, have just been added to the Catholic News Archives, a free online resource that provides access to twenty historic Catholic newspapers and news agencies from across the country from as early as the 1830s. All material is fully searchable by date and keyword.
Access to these newly digitized issues allows individuals to learn about many important issues, including:
- Catholic involvement in World War I and responses to the 1919 influenza epidemic
- Catholic institutional development during a period of immense brick-and-mortar growth
- Catholic reactions to women’s suffrage, prohibition, and other political issues of the period
- Catholic responses to renewed Nativism and anti-immigrant sentiment
- Catholic community life and social engagement among diverse communities
This most recent grant from the American Catholic Historical Society builds on an earlier donation that supported the digitization of the Catholic Standard & Times from 1944 to 1963.
