Buffalo, New York:
The Buffalo Evening News was founded in 1873. Our archives date back to 1880 when the paper began publishing a daily edition. The Buffalo Evening News is the predecessor to the Buffalo News. We currently have papers through 1946 and are actively updating this archive.
Buffalo found itself in the crosshairs of the world’s attention in September 1901. President William McKinley was in town to attend the Pan-American Exposition. On September 6, 1901, after returning from a day trip to Niagara Falls, the president was shot in the abdomen by anarchist Leon Czolgosz. The Evening News provided daily updates and reported on the arrival of Robert Lincoln, the son of President Lincoln, to pay his respects. President McKinley’s wound became infected as the days passed, and his condition deteriorated. President William McKinley died in Buffalo on September 14, 1901.
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina:
Hilton Head Island is home to The Island Packet. The paper started in 1970 when the island was primarily rural with only a few thousand permanent residents. As the island’s population grew, so did the paper. Initially a weekly, the paper transitioned to a daily broadsheet in the 1980s, adding news from wire services.
In 2016, The Island Packet reported on Hurricane Matthew. As the storm approached, the island opened roads using lane reversals to evacuate. The hurricane roared ashore with a six-foot storm surge, wreaking havoc and downing more than 100,000 trees. The Island Packet has tracked the growth and changes that have taken place on Hilton Head Island for more than five decades. Explore its pages to learn more about the lives of the residents on Hilton Head Island.

Learn more about important issues impacting the Latino population, including opinion columns, the local section, and more from Miami and the surrounding area.
