Searching in The New York Journal American Morgue:
The NYJA morgue came to the Briscoe Center with no inventory or index. For several years, we worked on completing rudimentary, handwritten checklists of the materials within the cabinets.
The New York Journal American Morgue (ca. 1900 – ca. 1966)
The New York Journal American morgue of approximately 9 million clippings was transferred to the Briscoe Center for American History by the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, which received the morgue in 1967. The HRC Photograph Division still retains the NYJA photographs morgue.
The NYJA clippings morgue is divided into biographical, subject and geographical categories. The clippings are not only from Hearst’s own publications in their various daily editions, but also from competitors and even some magazines.
* Morgue files are stored off site and must be requested several days to a week before you would like to view them. You may request up to seven files per day.
