California newspapers -- USC Digital Collections (1851-1864)

"The Los Angeles Star (La Estrella de Los Angeles) is available through a partnership with The Huntington Library, who generously allowed USC to digitize their complete holdings of this newspaper. Established in 1851 as a weekly newspaper, it was printed half in Spanish and half English until 1855. When the Civil War broke out, the outspoken criticism of the federal government by its editor led to the Star being banned from the mails, and the arrest of its editor for treason. It ceased publication in 1864, apparently due to financial problems, but resumed in 1868. In 1870 it became a daily, but ceased publication in 1879 because of lack of funds. No complete file is known to exist. The current collection consists of about 500 issues up through 1864."

"El Clamor Publico is available through a partnership with The Huntington Library, who generously allowed USC to digitize their complete holdings of this newspaper. Billed as Los Angeles' "Periodica Independiente y Literacio," El Clamor Publico was the first Spanish-language newspaper in California after the American occupation. It was founded by the former Spanish editor of the Los Angeles Star, Francisco P. Ramirez, a 19-year old printer. Published weekly, 233 four-page issues were published between July 1855 and August 1859. The initially moderate paper evolved into an activist tabloid and espoused strong political views generally in support of the Mexicanos. While articles commonly dealt with American political ideology and practice, the newspaper's publication of poetry and literature make it an excellent source of cultural history. It was distributed as far north as San Francisco."
