About Amateur Newspapers from the American Antiquarian Society
Amateur Newspapers from the American Antiquarian Society were a genre of nineteenth-century newspapers, written and published mainly by juvenile enthusiasts for the goal of publishing, not profiting. Some papers focused on general news, while others offered editorials, original literature, puzzles, or other matters of personal interest. In many ways, amateur newspapers can be thought of as the social media of their time, offering young adults a way to express their views and opinions.
