Newspaper Articles

In this section you can find articles that newspapers published before and after Elvis concerts. Every time I travel to a city where Elvis performed, I always pay a visit to the local public library to bring those articles. If you live in or close to a city where Elvis performed, it would be great if you can get those articles and send them to us.

A big thanks to people who sent newspaper reviews like Scott Hayward, Jim Bolton, REX's 1970s -WORLDWIDE ELVIS NEWS SERVICE WEEKLY, Sebastiano Cecere, Archie Bald, Geoffrey McDonnell, Kurt Hinkle and many more. Also the Public Libraries aroud US that took the time and their resources to send all the information from the 50s. Thank you.
