18 Years of the Perth Amboy Evening News

June 12, 1920

New Jersey’s contribution to Chronicling America continues to grow. An additional 1,100+ pages of the Perth Amboy Evening News were recently added to the site. As of today, 18 years of this important central New Jersey newspaper are now freely available online, totaling 61,509 pages. This includes issues from March 30, 1903 through March 31, 1921. The remaining run of the Perth Amboy Evening News (up through December 30, 1922) will go live in the near future, along with the initial issues from the Jersey City News, the second newspaper being digitized as part of the project.

The National Digital Newspaper Program is funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and is a collaboration among Rutgers University Libraries, the New Jersey State Archives, and the New Jersey State Library.
