The Newsweek Research Archive (1933-1996)

Newsweek, Inc. donated its research archive of approximately 3000 linear feet to the Briscoe Center for American History in 2001. In 1933, concurrent with the magazine’s birth, Newsweek staff began clipping and gathering newspaper and magazine articles, government reports, annual reports, reporter’s files, and ephemera. A variety of sources are represented in the archive for the 63-year clipping period. Newsweek, Time, New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal are the major sources.

The Briscoe Center for American History will make copies of published materials only for researchers in accordance with the University’s fair use guidelines. Any requests for copies that fall outside of fair use and for copies of unpublished material held in the files will be referred to Newsweek’s Rights and Permissions Department.

The Briscoe Center for American History maintained the organization established by Newsweek. The files are organized alphabetically and chronologically within three series: biographical, subject, and organizational.
