    Seeking online version of article in "Dawn" newspaper


      I am looking for the following article - Ghulam Moinuddin, “Spotlight on American Gutter Press: Lies and Slanders of Time,” Dawn, October 11, 1948 published in Pakistan. I have been unable to find any online archives of Dawn or any databases that have digitized the publication. I would appreciate any help!

          Hello Ms. Cohen:


          Thanks for your History Hub question.


          The Library of Congress Newspaper and Current Periodical Reading Room (NCPRR) collects titles from around the world, many of which can be viewed on microfilm.  All of the newspapers are listed in the Library’s Online Catalog.  A catalog search for newspapers published in Pakistan titled Dawn yielded three publications.  Details on the Library’s holdings of each are available through the “LCCN Permalinks” given below.  Although two of the titles have been reproduced onto microfilm, it does not appear that the older issues of any have been digitized.  For further information on how to get access these titles, please contact the NCPRR through its website.
