Fourteen more years of Catholic Standard & Times, spanning from 1916 to 1930, have just been added to the Catholic News Archives, a free online resource that provides access to 20 historic Catholic newspapers and news agencies from across the country from as early as the 1830s. All material is fully searchable by date and keyword.
Access to these newly digitized issues allows individuals to learn about many important issues, including:
Catholic involvement in World War I and responses to the 1919 influenza epidemic
Catholic institutional development during a period of immense brick-and-mortar growth
Catholic reactions to women’s suffrage, prohibition, and other political issues of the period
Catholic responses to renewed Nativism and anti-immigrant sentiment
Catholic community life and social engagement among diverse communities
This most recent grant from the American Catholic Historical Society builds on an earlier donation that supported the digitization of the Catholic Standard & Times from 1944 to 1963.
The Catholic Standard & Times, the official newspaper of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia, was published between 1895 and 2012.
Individuals can view material from The Catholic Standard & Times and nineteen other Catholic newspapers and news sources by visiting The Catholic News Archive.
