German-language newspapers and periodicalshave probably been the greatest in number and influence among America’s foreign-language press. They flourished at the turn of the century but suffered a disastrous blow during World War I, when public sentiment caused many to cease publication. In some cases back issues were even destroyed, and with them a great deal of source material on local history was lost. To fill this gap, the authors have sought to compile a complete bibliography of German-language papers published in the United States and to locate files of these publications whenever possible. In some cases complete holdings could only be found in European libraries. About 5,000 titles are included, arranged by State and city. Each entry includes dates of publication, changes of title, names of editors and publishers, and often a brief commentary. The section for each State begins with a short introductory summary giving statistics of the German element. The main body of the work is followed by a title index, an extensive bibliography, and an appendix listing 111 additional serials, mostly prisoner-of-war camp papers.

The foreign-language press is not the influential voice in America today that it was 50 years ago before curbs were placed on immigration, but it is still a factor in American political life and a reminder of the diverse national origins of American citizens. In 1960, there were 65 daily foreign-language newspapers and more than 200 weeklies in 33 languages. Since second- and third-generation Americans have tended to lose interest in their ancestral lands and languages, many of the surviving papers have accepted sponsorship by nationality societies or religious groups or have shifted to publication in English. A small number are under Communist control. Individual publications are discussed briefly in this survey, which is the first attempt at a general view since The Immigrant Press and Its Control (1922), by Robert E. Park, no. 2897 in the 1960 Guide.
