Abstract

The official newspaper for the American Expeditionary Force in France, Stars and Stripes was published from February 1918 to June 1919, and is accessible to users in this online collection created by the Serial and Government Publications Division of the Library of Congress. The collection includes the complete seventy-one-week run of the newspaper's World War I edition. Designed to create a sense of unity and provide an understanding of the war effort to American units scattered across the Western Front, the paper featured news from home, sports news, poetry, and cartoons, with a staff that included journalists Alexander Woollcott, Harold Ross, and Grantland Rice. The archive is both browseable and searchable, and is accompanied by an introductory essay.
