Special Archives -- 1960 to 1965

The Criterion is currently undertaking a project to preserve and make accessible our archived issues that pre-date the digital era. Thanks to many hours of microfilm scanning in our archdiocesan archives, as well as time processing the files and cataloging headlines, you may now browse issues from our first years as a newspaper. There will be more years to come.

See PDF versions from 1960, our inaugural year, or from the start of the Second Vatican Council in 1962, or browse through the 1963, the year in which both Pope John XXIII and U.S. President John F. Kennedy died.
