Financial Times Historical Archive (1888-2016 )

A complete online, fully searchable facsimile, the Financial Times Historical Archive, 1888-2016 delivers the complete run of the London edition of this internationally known daily paper, from its first issue through 2016. Every article, advertisement, and market listing is included — shown both individually and in the context of the full page and issue of the day. Each item has been subject- or topic-categorized for fast retrieval and review.

Initially focused on the global financial and economic issues that were to become the predominant forces of the twentieth century, the Financial Times expanded coverage in the postwar years, reporting on topics such as industry, energy, and international politics. In more recent decades, coverage of management, personal finance, and the arts has been added. Today, with more full-time foreign correspondents than any other European newspaper, a wider readership internationally than in the UK, worldwide circulation of nearly 500,000, and estimated global readership of more than 1.9 million people, the Financial Times is recognized as the complete newspaper for the world of business throughout the world.

Besides this archive, you can also access articles from the Financial Times in these databases.
