Army...Navy...Air Force...Marines... National Guard...Coast Guard...Merchant Marines. Each branch of the U.S. military has a distinct heritage. The histories, traditions, and accomplishments of each branch are recorded in vivid detail in military newspapers. These papers were produced to inform, entertain, and uphold the morale of service personnel.

As one of the largest collections of its kind ever amassed, the Walter S. and Esther Dougherty Collection of Military Newspapers of the United States brings together more than 4,000 issues of military papers. Nearly 2,500 distinct titles are represented, including issues from the Mexican War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam conflict, and the years between military conflicts.

Most titles date from World War II. Due to the location of military personnel during the war, many titles were published in Europe or the Pacific. Others were published in the U.S. and sent to troops abroad.

Titles from all military branches are included, as well as some associated titles from defense industries.

For ease of use, the titles are arranged alphabetically within the collection. A brief history of the collection written by Walter S. Dougherty and a printed guide are also included. This comprehensive collection will be valued by students of military history, military science, and political science.
