Product Overview

The history of journalism is generally regarded as one of the least developed and most widely overlooked areas of mass communications scholarship and teaching. This comprehensive volume, undertaken under the aegis of the American Journalism Historians Association (AJHA), was developed to meet the needs for definitive information and resources in this area. It is the only work available which focuses specifically on manuscript sources relating to journalism history. The guide includes essays by authorities in the areas of historiography, bibliographic sources, databases relating to journalism history, U.S. Newspaper Program, and oral history. Historical sources documenting the news function of print and electronic media in the U.S. are listed along with specific information about collections in archival and manuscript repositories in 40 states. An extensive name index to special collections enables the researcher to link related materials held by different institutions.
