Yale Daily News Digital Archive

The Daily News is an American newspaper published in New York City. It is the third largest newspaper in the United States with a circulation of about 2.4 million copies a day and is considered to be one of the most influential newspapers in the country. The paper is not related to the earlier Daily News of the 19th century, which was the first tabloid newspaper in the U.S., nor to the New York Daily News of the 20th century which was a major metropolitan newspaper in its heyday.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive offers access to digitized versions of printed issues of the Daily News. The archive spans the years from 1919 to 2023 and includes 18,680,445 searchable pages. Yale University Library has scanned these pages from print volumes held in its collections and made them available on this website. Yale alums have contributed generously to support the ongoing digitization and maintenance of the archive.

Founded on January 28, 1878, the Yale Daily News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States and has been editorially independent since its founding. It publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year, and also produces a weekly game day issue, a Commencement edition and special issues to celebrate Yale’s diversity in partnership with student groups and cultural centers on campus. The News also maintains an extensive online archive.
