U.S. City Bureaus Collection

The U.S. City Bureaus Collection offers access to records from the AP’s domestic bureaus, dating from 1931 to 2004.

Cities include:

• Atlanta
• Austin
• Birmingham
• Chicago
• Dallas
• Miami
• New Orleans
• Pittsburgh
• San Francisco

Primarily a post-World War II collection, these records include news stories in the form of typescript carbons or wire copy, the version that AP sent on to its  member newspapers. Among the most covered topics are crime, education, civil rights, environmental issues, immigration, urban affairs, sports, elections, and politics. With surprising frequency, regional stories turned into news of transcendent importance.
