Cuban Missile Crisis Documents from The Washington Post:

“The Washington Post has announced a special seven-day opportunity to view newspaper articles written between October 22 and October 29, 1962 — the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

You can get to the newspaper sections here. Every day a new edition of the newspaper will be added [currently October 22 through 31 are available — FmH]

The papers are in PDF format. Click on a date and the paper will load. The paper is presented as it originally appeared — ads, comics, and all. The October 22 paper was 45 pages long. A pull-down menu at the top of the page allows you to choose the page you want to view (there are also forward and

back arrows next to the pull-down menu.) A zoom of 100% allowed me to read anything I wanted to read, though you can zoom in closer if you like just in case you didn’t quite get everything in the Peanuts cartoon.” Legal Research Buzz [via Dave Farber’s Interesting People mailing list]
