INDEX to Philippine articles in
ORIGINAL 1899 newspapers

This index is a guide to the original editions of newspapers kept by friends of William Dinwiddie, news correspondent stationed in the Philippines during the 1899 war, and later appointed as Governor of the Lepanto-Bontoc province.

These are not news clippings, but original-sized editions similar to today's Wall Sreet Journal or Financial Times. Some are still in fair condition, others are termite-eaten. Three of the editions have been framed to keep them from falling apart:
