San Francisco Chronicle (Historical)

Historical full-text backfiles of The San Francisco Chronicle from ProQuest supplement USC's already rich holdings of historical newspapers. Founded by two teenage brothers in 1865 when the West was still wild, this newspaper lets researchers travel back in time to experience the completion of the transcontinental railroad, the Klondike gold rush, the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906, America's entry into World War I, and many other events that shaped both the City by the Bay and the United States. As part of the ProQuest Historical Newspapers(TM) program, the San Francisco Chronicle (1865-1922) has been digitized from cover to cover. It can be cross-searched with the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and other important historical newspaper titles, letting researchers track the news as it travelled across the country and around the globe.
