Daily Mail Historical Archive, 1896 – 2004
Available June 2013
Described by the New Yorker as "the newspaper that rules Britain", the Daily Mail has been at the heart of British journalism since 1896, regularly changing the course of government policy and setting the national debate. It currently boasts a circulation of over 2 million, and its website is the most visited news site in the world. Its founder, Lord Harmsworth, identified a gap in the market for a paper that delivered readers “the three things that are always news: health, sex and money”. What set the Daily Mail apart from other newspapers was its short and engaging news stories, written with human interest in mind. Gale is delighted to deliver the historical archive of the Daily Mail for the first time, fully searchable and browse-able. Its approx. 1.2 million pages can be viewed in full digital facsimile format, with the copious advertisements in particular providing a sense of the values and aspirations of the day.

From the time of the American Revolution, when northern states freed relatively small numbers of slaves, to later periods when an increasingly large free black community was developing, emancipation was a long-sought dream, and ultimately a political and moral expectation.
