Some early years of the Houston Post may now be accessed online. Issues from 1893 through the 1920s are available electronically from an ongoing project of the Portal to Texas History. Hint - To see issues in order by date, select the Newspapers tab, enter "Houston Post" in the search box and select "title" from the pull down menu. Once you get results, sort by date created (oldest).
Fondren Library has this newspaper on microfilm from 1881 until it ceased in 1995, with a few gaps in coverage. The newspaper changed names several times before 1932; see these catalog records for detailed holdings information:
- Houston post (Houston, Tex. : 1883) [1883-1887]
- Houston daily post (Houston, Tex. : 1886) [1887-1903]
- Houston post (1903) [1903-1924]
- Houston post-dispatch [1924-1932]
- Houston post (1932) [1932-1995]
The Houston Post Index (located in the Reference Collection on the 1st floor, call number: AI 21 .H6 H6) covers 1976-1994.
Our microfilm collection is available to the general public. The microfilm section is in the basement of our library, as part of the Kelley Center for Government Information, Data and Geospatial Services, although some of the microfilm has been moved to the Library Service Center (LSC). There is a service desk there, staffed with people who are knowledgeable about the collection and about how to use the microfilm reader/printer/scanners.
