Daily Courier Light

What's Inside this Collection.

Daily Courier Light

The Daily Courier Light began publication in Corsicana, Texas, in 1880. Corsicana was founded in 1848 by Jose Antonio Navarro, who named the town after his father's Mediterranean birthplace, the island of Corsica. Since its founding, Corsicana has seen three oil booms, an airman flying school and also, in 1905, a significant gift by Andrew Carnegie in support of the founding of a public library. Digital access to the Daily Courier Light was generously supported by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under a TexTreasures grant.
