Events in Mount Prospect over the past 100 years have been documented by a few local newspapers; occasionally the Chicago Tribune would make brief mentions of the village, and the Daily Herald has been a source of Mount Prospect news since 1901.
Two other newspapers were focused just on Mount Prospect. Both papers document life in Mount Prospect during challenging times in history:
From 1932-1942 the Mount Prospect Review covered local events during the Great Depression and early World War II years.
From April 1966 to June 1970 The Prospect Day covered events during a time of great growth and change in Mount Prospect. Digital copies of these newspapers are searchable on the MPPL website.
The Mount Prospect Review and the historical Daily Herald can be searched through the web resource Newspaper Archive. This source is only available in the Library. The Prospect Day was recently digitized and is available on the MPPL website on this page. The Historical Chicago Tribune, Newspaper Archive and Prospect Day can also be accessed by going to the newspapers section of the Web Resources page of the MPPL website.
