The Library of Congress' Chronicling America website includes the digitized, keyword-searchable St. Louis Republic, 1900-1904. Under the "OR select newspaper(s)" heading, select "St. Louis Republic," then try some searches in the "Enter search" section.
Note to house historians: If you are researching a house that dates back to this time period (1900-1904), search for the street address of your home.
Please note: These digitized newspaper issues were rendered searchable by optical character recognition (OCR) software, which translates scanned printed text into machine-readable (i.e., searchable) text. Oftentimes, the OCR software misinterprets the typeset letters, so be prepared for more than a few “speed bumps” when searching / reading these items.
Click “Search Pages” in the “View Newspaper Pages” box.
