​​​​              About The Archive

        The Archive of American Journalism began as a private collection of the long-neglected, hard-to-find works of major American journalists. We now have five books in print, four new books in production for 2016, and an online compilation of more than 4,000 freely accessible works by 13 major American authors. This innovative resource presents all articles with their original titles and format, and unabridged. The collection is organized by author and in chronological order for the ease of students, teachers, historians and casual readers. With a title or date, users can access a full-text, printable PDF of any article within seconds. (We are now in the process of converting our PDFs to more user-friendly and visually inviting WordPress pages.) Valuable time used in browsing "sponsored" search engines, thumbing through confusing bibliographies, and wandering the dusty halls of labyrinthine academic libraries can instead be spent reading, studying and enjoying the original texts. 

        We're here to inform and entertain. The Archive is available for students, teachers, researchers and casual readers free of charge and free of interruption.  We welcome your comments, advice, and opinions, and we will gratefully accept and acknowledge donations to our ongoing mission: creating the world's most interesting and useful historic journalism resource.

Ernest Hemingway Chats

with Benito Mussolini

Fascisti Party Now Half-Million Strong

Toronto Star Weekly/June 24, 1922

Milan.-Benito Mussolini, head of the Fascisti movement, sits at his desk at the fuse of the great powder magazine that he has laid through all Northern and Central Italy and occasionally fondles the ears of a wolf­hound pup, looking like a short-eared jackrabbit, that plays with the papers on the floor beside the big desk. Mussolini is a big, brown-faced man with a high forehead, a slow smiling mouth, and large, expressive hands.

“The Fascisti are now half a million strong,” he told me. “We are a political party organized as a military force” . . . 

        ​“The Archive of American Journalism is performing an incredibly valuable service in making available to a wide audience the remarkable work of great journalists of the past. As one who has written widely on nineteenth and twentieth century journalists, I know firsthand how valuable and important—and frankly fascinating—was the work of these extraordinary writers. With these books a new generation will be able to rediscover them, as well.”

James McGrath Morris, author of Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power and Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, The First Lady of the Black Press.
