HIST 299: Korean War, History & Memory: Finding Newspaper & Magazine Articles

Why is it so hard to find newspaper articles from the 1950s?

All works first published or released in the United States before January 1, 1928, have lost their copyright protection, effective January 1, 2023. Most of our databases do not provide access to articles published between 1928 and the 1990s.  Listed below are the databases that can help you find articles from the 1950s.

How To Find Articles

  1. Use the databases listed on this page to find articles.
  2. If it isn't available in full-text, click the "Find It!" button.  We might have e-access another way or have it in print. 
  3. If we don't have it, order the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

If you're off-campus, you will be prompted for your Willamette username & password.
