    • History

      Founded in 2002 the GNM Archive preserves and promotes the histories and values of the Guardian and the Observer newspapers by collecting and making accessible material that provides an accurate and comprehensive history of the papers.The archive holds official records of the Guardian and the Observer and also seeks to acquire material from people who have been associated with the papers. As well as corporate records the archive therefore holds correspondence, diaries, notebooks, original cartoons and photographs belonging to staff of the papers. However, please note that the archive does not hold copies of the newspapers themselves. Information on how to access past articles from the papers is available on our website.
