Another great resource for historical newspaper archives is this site at XooxleAnswers:
Free Newspaper Archives
There are a ton of great links here, all of them to online newspaper and magazine archives that go back at least 50 years. Some of them go back to the 17th century!
Best of all, everything listed here is free. There is no charge to access any of the archives listed at this site.
Most of the material is from the US, and is in English, but there are also many international listings, and non-English listings (French, German, Polish, Hebrew, even Maori!), from both the US and elsewhere.
Definitely worth checking out!
