I haven’t had significant historical research experience, so I can’t be much help there, but I noticed the instagram you guys made is, well, pretty dead. I’ve got a good deal of journalism experience, which has given me some nifty research instincts, and I minored in history in college and had some experience with histiography. If you folks had any interest, I’d be willing to boot this back up, perhaps a daily post of the front page of some English language newspapers? Archives aren’t hard to find. I’ve been looking into the legality of it (dont wanna get sued by the times) and there’s ways to do it, esp with defunct papers.
btw, you guys might be familiar with it, but life magazine’s entire collection has been uploaded online, including through the war years. it’s a pretty incredible time capsule imo, especially the commentary from the columnists (check out the doom and gloom after the fall of france, predictions of nazi bombers over new york)
