Boston Phoenix archives donated to Northeastern

For nearly 50 years, The Boston Phoenix, which ceased pub­li­ca­tion in 2013, was Boston’s alter­na­tive news­paper of record, the first word on social jus­tice, pol­i­tics, as well as the arts and music scene. Now, thanks to a gift from Phoenix owner Stephen Mindich, that work will be pre­served for pos­terity in Snell Library’s Archives and Spe­cial Collections.
