New Mexico, New Spain, Old Cultures: Historic Spanish-Language Newspapers in Chronicling America
Open one of the dozens of Spanish-language newspapers published in the United States today and you can keep up with local, national, and international news, and read about politics, entertainment, health, advice, reviews, and advertisements. Much the same can be said for the flourishing Spanish-language press of the 19th- and early 20th-century United States. NEH and the Library of Congress’s online newspaper database Chronicling America now contains 36 Spanish-language and bilingual newspapers published in the United States between 1836 and 1922, totaling 71,404 pages.
