Originally compiled by The Detroit News, this subject index of The Detroit News newspaper totals more than 1 million index cards. The tables of PDF files below are arranged alphabetically by subject and date approximately from the late 1800’s to the late 1990’s.
An index card here at Michiganology indicates that there is a clipping file for those articles. Researchers may then request to look in the clippings file here at the Archives of Michigan for the actual articles cited or visit a research institution that has the newspaper on microfilm. Institutions that have microfilm copies of The Detroit News include the Library of Michigan and the Detroit Public Library. At this time, the Archives of Michigan does not have a set of The Detroit News on microfilm.
Because the cards are organized by subject, researchers should be prepared to look for any number of different headings.
