Journalism in the United States

Stanford has undertaken a fascinating project tracing the growth of newspapers in the U.S.

Here is their description: This visualization plots over 140,000 newspapers published over three centuries in the United States. The data comes from the Library of Congress’ “Chronicling America” project, which maintains a regularly updated directory of newspapers.

There are many applications for these maps in Social Studies classes. Enjoy!
