Chris Stegman: Restore Milwaukee's Newspaper Archives!

Please take action to restore the Milwaukee Journal, Milwaukee Sentinel, and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel archives to the Google News Archive so they may be accessed free of charge by the public.

Why is this important?

Students, scholars, and all manner of active citizens have relied on free access to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel archives to better understand our community's history. The removal of these archives on Tuesday, August 16 makes it impossible for most citizens to view this valuable information. Please show your support for our city by restoring access to these archives.


Reasons for signing

  • Please add all the suburban (NOW) papers that the Journal bought and managed, as well.
  • I was searching for weeks for an article before I realized they had been removed. Restore the Archives! I knew I should have used my snipping tool!
  • grew up in Milwaukee and family is still there. sounds like the city is being held hostage.
