News Features & Internal Communications Collection


The News Features & Internal Communications Collection includes news analysis, human interest stories, and entertainment and sports reporting from the 1940s forward. While News Features gave writers the freedom to explore the back story, address cultural happenings,  and provide their own interpretations of events, internal communications allowed the Associated Press to tell its own story. This collection provides rare access to an array of internal AP publications dating from the turn of the century, offering invaluable insight into the AP, its staff, and the history of news coverage.

Internal communications include:

• AP World and other serial publications
• Personal papers of reporters and administrators
• Staff and company news
• Technological innovations
• Bureau histories
• Multiple editions of the AP Stylebook
• AP World Services
• Weekly tallies of the AP’s top stories
