Yale Daily News Historical Archive


The digitization of the Yale Daily News archive was made possible by a partnership between Yale Daily News Historical Archive Supporters, Yale University Library, and the Yale Daily News.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive is the result of many donors’ generosity. A recent lead gift from an anonymous Yale College alumnus facilitated the migration of the Archive to a new platform, will allow for the addition of issues from 1996 to the present, and will support the ongoing work necessary to maintain and preserve the Archive for the long term.

The following donors supported the digitization of specific years of the YDN in the first phase of the project:
