The Boston News-Letter, thought to be America’s first continuing newspaper, is pictured on page 364 of Journalism: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How.

It was first published by John Campbell in 1704. William David Sloan, a professor of journalism at the University of Alabama and one of America’s distinguished journalism historians, has put together an extensive history of this newspaper for the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.
