Begins:January 1, 2020

The Globe and Mail is Canada’s largest circulation national newspaper and is typically cited as being “Canada’s Newspaper of Record.” The Globe was founded in 1844 by Scottish immigrant George Brown, a liberal who later became a Father of the Confederation, and in 1936 merged with The Mail and Empire and became The Globe and Mail. While the paper was largely known as a general conservative voice of the business establishment, it did have some liberal sway; an editorial in a 1967 issue coined the phrase “The State has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.”
This historical newspaper provides valuable insight into the political and social life of Canada during the 19th and 20th centuries. It includes searchable access to all parts of the newspaper, including content like advertisements, editorials, cartoons, and classified ads that illuminate history.
