New York Times archives on line

Yup. And free. And they go back to 1851. Even though the NYT of the 19th Century was not the powerhouse it became in the 20th, there is still a trove of information here. The older articles are in PDF format, so you can’t cut and paste, but this is a minor annoyance.

This is fantastic. Not sure if you’re aware, but The Times also has their complete archive online:

It requires a little more hassle in terms of registration. The search functionality is a little quirky as well. But I have found it to be a great source of historical information.
