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.
