Connection: Earth Day

Tuesday is Earth Day, first commemorated on April 22, 1970. The library’s archival access to digitized images of The New York Times means that we can easily see the newspaper’s coverage of Earth Day that first year. Under the headline Millions Join Earth Day Observances Across the Nation appeared this article summarizing events across the United States. An editorial, “The Good Earth” appeared on the same date, as did several other news stories. For more information on searching the archives of The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and The Times (London), contact the Reference Desk.
