Newspapers as Primary Sources

A primary source is an original text, such as a novel, a movie, a diary, or any kind of material that gives you a first-hand account of an event or situation. Newspaper articles can be considered a primary source because they typically tell the story as it happened, without a secondary analysis. Historical newspapers provide a window into the past, where we can read about events that have happened so that we may analyze them with new knowledge.
