Welcome to Anglophone Chile, a digital archive of the newspapers published by Anglo-American residents of Chile in the nineteenth century. The collection provides invaluable evidence of the early history of globalisation as well as vivid glimpses of daily life in Valparaíso in the nineteenth century.

We currently have three newspapers available: 
Valparaiso English Mercury (1843-44)
Valparaiso & West Coast Mail (1867-74)
The Star of Chile (1904-06)

The "Collections" tab above provides access the newspaper PDFs. We hope to make full text available soon as well.
