* How far back do you keep newspapers?
The Gleaner Company keeps a physical preservation copy of The Gleaner and The Star as far back as 1968. These preservation copies are not for sale. The Gleaner Company has a microfilm copy of The Gleaner back to 1834, when it began publication. Although the collection is incomplete, we are working to fill the gaps. You can also visit http://gleaner.newspaperarchive.com for pdf versions of the microfilmed pages.
