Published in Cameron County, Texas, the Daily Cosmopolitan began distribution to the Brownsville population in 1879. The Daily Cosmopolitan was issued every night of the week except Sunday. Editor W.P. Guirey was fluent in Spanish and therefore specialized in reporting on Matamoros residents and topics, along with nearby border town news.
The first issue of The Amarillo Daily Panhandle was published in 1906 by Peter E. Bosen. It ran every evening except Sunday. As the official newspaper of Amarillo and Potter County, the Panhandle printed local political, school board, church, and social news in addition to state and national news. The Panhandle was unusual for the period because it lacked advertising on the front page.

The collection also contains related unpublished materials including checklists, invitations, press releases, and other ephemera for exhibitions held by the museum between 1903 and 1990s.
The Sixth Floor Museum’s Dallas Times Herald Collection contains original negatives of approximately 700 black-and-white news images taken by the newspaper’s photographers over the assassination weekend and beyond. Included in the collection are many unique and crucial images, and though only a few of these historic scenes were published by the Times Herald in 1963, they provide a powerful visual record of President Kennedy's last hours in Fort Worth and Dallas, including the motorcade, assassination aftermath, and investigations. The images also provide compelling evidence of the grief and chaos that ensued in the days following the tragedy.
