For a complete inventory of the Maryland Gazette
collections (MSA SC 2853, SC 2731, SC 3403, SC 3428, and SC 3447) please see the Guide
to Maryland Newspapers. The Maryland State Archives owns two
microfilm collections containing images of the Maryland Gazette
Collection from 1745-1839. The first collection of Maryland
Gazette microfilm was filmed by the Yale University Library between
1938 and 1940. The Yale film, reels M1 through
M25, is old and incomplete and the images are not very
legible. The second collection was filmed by Atlantic Microfilm
Corporation in 1970, and comprises reel M1278 through M1291; the
resulting images from this collection are much clearer than those found
on the earlier reels.
