More great research news:
To me, this is one of the best things to happen in news research since I started in this business a loooong time ago.
First the New York Times, now The Washington Post is putting its historical archive on the Web. Searches covering 1877-1986 are free, with a standard $2.95 charge (same as recent electronic archives) to read/download/print full text of a story. (Discounts available for larger purchases.)
This is a dream come true for those many of us who may have access to only one newspaper's microfilm, in many cases unindexed.
