Cindy Krolikowski, Library Goddess III, informs that Wayne State now has access to the Detroit Free Press Historical Full Text, 1831-1922. For those accustomed to flogging microfilm, this is a remarkable new research convenience!
Cindy states that the easiest way to access it is to get into the Wayne State University Library System's home page.
Click on the tab that says "Article Databases."
Either type in the name "Detroit Free Press" and choose from the two choices offered, or click on the letter "D" from the list of the alphabet displayed underneath the "Search" box and scroll down to "Detroit Free Press Historical Full Text, 1831-1992."
