Featured websites – The Liberator Files…

Within the past few months, three members of Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers each recommended the same website, The Liberator Files, as a great resource for exploring this well-known abolitionist title from the early/mid 1800’s.  This Boston paper was published by William Lloyd Garrison, and provides wonderful context for this formative period in U.S. history – from the early 1830’s through the end of the Civil War.  The Liberator Files, developed and maintained by Horace Seldon, includes a wealth of abolitionist related commentary in conjunction with a host of scanned Liberator images from William Lloyd Garrison’s own collection, which are currently held at the Boston Public Library.  Thanks Horace, for your significant contribution to the world of rare & historic newspapers.   Please enjoy!

Feel free to share with the rare newspapers community other historical and/or rare newspaper oriented websites you’ve found to  be of use.
