Memorable headlines from The Herald’s first 113 years

Now in its 113th year and counting, the print edition of The Herald has seen a lot of big news. A presidential assassination occurred when the paper wasn’t even a year old, and for many years, The Herald was the first word Everett residents heard about major events such as World War I and the feats of early aviators.

We’ve gone through our archives and collected Herald front pages from historical events — mostly big ones such as World Wars I and II, and some quirky ones like the infamous Everett tire fire of 1984. You can click on any page to see a bigger version if you’d like a closer look at the stories. Some of the pages are in rough shape, but most are pretty good.

For fans of newspapers or history, it’s a treat to flip through and see how the news looked back in the day and how the paper has changed over the years.

Here are some quick links to the pages in the image above:

Lindbergh lands in Paris (1927)

Man walks on the moon (1969)

V-E Day in World War II (1945)

First American in space (1961)
