White Sands Missile Range has digitized it's base newspapers dating back to 1950. There are a few missing years during the 1950s. You can search by name/subject and date.

Even if you never lived there, the articles cover day-to-day life on a military base, as well as missile-related news. Enter "Nike" and you have nearly 900 items to search through.

Even the period advertisements are entertaining.

Interesting, I had been to White Sands in the late 60's to early 70's to fire at the range. Thanks for sharing.
