Portland's long time newspaper of record, the Portland Press-Herald, began printing in November 1921 as Guy Patterson Gannett's merging of the Portland Daily Press (which began in 1862), and the Portland Herald (which was a short-lived successor of the Eastern Argus, which began in 1803). Gannett later purchased the Portland Evening Express, and the Portland Sunday Telegram, and by the 1940s, the Press-Herald as we know it today took shape as a daily newspaper.

The Library's Portland Room provides access to the complete run of the Press-Herald (as well as the Evening Express and Sunday Telegram, along with their predecessor newspapers) on microfilm.
An additional electronic resource, offering the Press-Herald fulltext, beginning in 1995 is the Maine Newsstand database, freely accessible in Maine via Digital Maine Library.
