At last there is a responsible website that functions as a free archive of historical magazine articles. Is one of the very few websites in existence that does not require users to pay a subscription fee in order to gain access to its collection of rare and historic magazine articles.

I was thrilled to read about that frenzied, drunken night in Paris when World War One finally came to its bloody end -- and I was equally excited to read an eye-witness account of Lincoln's visit to the charred remains of Richmond, just days before his murder.
Unlike many sites on the web where every print article has been retyped into that graphic style so unique to computers, OldMagazineArticles.com offers all of its magazine articles in the same format in which they first appeared to the reading public so many years before. Each article is photocopied from the original magazine and carefully scanned into PDF format so that all the readers are able to store the information among their own files, while retaining its original graphic appearance.

Shortly after the site's free archive went online, there was a welcomed email from Mike Hanlon of The Great War Society that read "Congratulations on truly making a real contribution to history on the net." Further emails arrived, many from academics: "I was thrilled to read about that frenzied, drunken night in Paris when World War One finally came to its bloody end -- and I was equally excited to read an eye-witness account of Lincoln's visit to the charred remains of Richmond, just days before his murder." For many students, hobbyists and professional researchers who need original source material, there are not many addresses on the web they can turn to, which is why OldMagazineArticles.com has been recognized as a valuable reference site for historical information.

The site's Content Editor, Matthew Jacobsen, remarked that "these articles deserve to be brought into the light of day and referred to again and again; they should not be locked away in the world's dustiest, darkest libraries and attics where only the scholarly and the eccentric can get at them. They concern topics that are not going away any time soon and subjects addressed continue to be fed into the query boxes of the internet's search engines on a daily basis. So many of the articles were written with such an intense fire in the belly that their outrage can still be experienced by contemporary readers."

Jacobsen, a former costume designer who grew impatient with Hollywood's lack of historical projects, discovered the importance of 1920's magazine articles while researching costumes for a period movie. Indeed, the site has a large collection of illustrated men's fashion editorial articles as well as the internet's largest assembled collection of essays from Vanity Fair Magazine (1913-1922). The site seeks to provide a wide spectrum of opinion on a number of topics in order to give its readers a better understanding of not simply the previous eras, but an understanding of the men and women who did the living and dying in those decades. The magazines and newspapers represented in the free archive include the NAACP periodical "Crises," "The New Republic," "The Nation," "The Spectator," "The New York Times" and "The Stars and Stripes," to name only a few.

In keeping with the theme of highly relevant historical articles, OldMagazineArticles.com is proud to offer articles about Iraq that are as relevant today as when the British Army struggled there in the 1920’s, which was exclusively earlier uploaded this month.

It's a rare experience for any internet user when they are able to download magazine articles about really weird inventions, as well as 1913 Picasso art reviews -- and get both from the same website; that's why OldMagazineArticles.com is like no other website on the internet.
