Finnish-American Newspapers (includes oversize periodicals)

The following represents a list of Finnish-American and related newspaper holdings of the Finnish-American Historical Archive.  It includes only print copies, and does not include the Archive's microfilm collection.

For the convenience of researchers, a listing of the complete dates of the run of each newspaper (when known) is also included, as well as Finnish-American newspapers which the archive does not hold (in italics).

In 1985 Dr. A. William Hoglund (1926-2008), recipient of Finland's medal of the White Rose and professor of history at University of Connecticut, compiled the Union List of Finnish Newspapers Published by Finns in the United States and Canada, 1876-1985, as part of the Finnish American Newspapers Microfilm Project (United Fund for Finnish American Archives, Suomi College, Immigration History Research Center).   Professor Hoglund's Union List proved to be a valuable resource when determining run dates and other information about Finnish-American newspapers.

Items marked with an asterisk indicate Finnish-American newspapers not found in the above-mentioned Union List of Finnish Newspapers (1965).

Kent Randell, 2010, with Megan Ott, Larissa Poyhonen, and Pete Stubbs.
