Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

Ever wonder about Columbia's exciting historical newspapers collection?  So much journalism history is right at your fingertips, including titles like The (New York) Sun from which the famous declaration to eight-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon was written in 1897.  You can find this letter to the editor in The Sun in the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, but that's only the beginning!  We have many digitized historical newspapers through ProQuest Historical Newspapers, Gale NewsVault, Archive of Americana, and more.  Enjoy some history this holiday season!
