Magazine Articles Archives

Magazine article archives online can provide a convenient alternative to hours spent straining your eyes staring at microfilm. If you are serious about your area of study, however, you will find that most online sites do not provide unique or comprehensive selections of articles. They probably cover the same information that you can get in any history book.

OldMagazineArticles.com, however, has a number of specialty collections, compiled with the goal of illuminating some of the most dramatic events in our nation's history with a uniquely humanist perspective. The WWI era is actually the focus of many of our archives. You may want to take a look at our cartoons from 1914-1919, or our articles (and pictures) of U.S Army and Navy uniforms from WWI. We also have an extensive collection of articles about propaganda during WWI.

Magazine Articles Archives on Prohibition and Culture
You can find a number of magazine and newspaper pieces about prohibition, the sinking of the Titanic, and early aviation in our selection. If your interests are in music, sports, royal families or silent movies, you'll also find archives with old magazine articles, interviews, and op-eds that you won't find elsewhere. Many writers of both history and fiction have found the kind of details that make their writing sparkle from reading these articles.

While many of our archives focus on older magazine articles, several are timely in an uncanny way. Browse our Iraq category for insight into the war that is dividing our country today, though the specific articles are from the 1920s. Similarly, if you are troubled by political conflict over immigration, you may find some fresh perspective by reading about how the same issues were equally fraught in the 1910s and 20s.
