Archives FAQ

How do I find an older photo or article on Stripes.com?

The easiest way to find an older photo or article is to search our Archives. If you need help locating an item, you can also fill out our Archive Request form to submit a request. Once we receive your information, we will do a courtesy search for you and see if we can locate the item.

You can also sign up for an Archives subscription. Rates range from $4.95 for a single day to $7.95 per month or $47.40 annually.

Stars and Stripes provides online access to the majority of its editions and years of publication. Please note there is no guarantee that what you are looking for will be in the archives.

Can you help me search for a photo?

For assistance in searching for a photo, please submit your request by completing our Archive Request form. Once we receive your information, we will do a courtesy search for you and see if we can locate the item you are looking for.

If we are not able to assist you, it is also possible that you might find the item in our Newspaper Archives (access does require a small subscription fee, the lowest of which is $4.95 for a day). Please note, however, that most of the archive content was created from microfilm, which is not likely to produce a good image that you could reproduce with any clarity.

How do I contact the Stars and Stripes Archives department?

If you are looking for an article from a year not yet digitized, or have another research or reference query, please contact the Stars and Stripes library & archives staff via the contact form.
