Caribbean Archives Newspaper Collection Increases
Archivist Victoria Borg O’Flaherty said previously the National Archives’ physical paper collections of the Courier (Gazette), and the Advertizer dated back to the 1870s while there were microfilm copies available from 1822, thanks to donations from the American Antiquarian Society and the British Library. The latest acquisition provided the Courier of Saturday, 18 April, 1801 and the Advertizer for Tuesday, 28 April, 1801.
The National Archives does not have copies of all the mentioned newspapers of the 19th century, but O’Flaherty is hopeful that more finds would come from would be benefactors.
