The Lewis & Clark Special Collections and Archives (Lewis & Clark College, Portland, OR) has digitized and provided open access to The Revolution newspaper which was published in New York as the official organ of the National Woman Suffrage Association. Edited by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Parker Pillsbury, with Susan B.
Open access to full view (and open text search) of The Woman's Journal which was published in Boston from 1870 to 1917. In 1912 the title was changed to Woman's Journal and Suffrage News but it changed back again to The Woman's Journal in 1917. It was edited by Julia Ward Howe, Lucy Stone, Thomas Wentworth Higginson, et al. It originated as the official organ of the American Woman Suffrage Association, and offered an alternative to the National Woman Suffrage Association's weekly newspaper coming out of New York, The Revolution.
Vincent (Ted) Lee, who died a few years ago, testified at some length to a Congressional committee investigating the JFK assassination. Lee had become secretary of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee as a neutral figure that its two main factions (CP and SWP) could tolerate. He had joined the Merchant Marine during WWII while still a minor, and after the war became involved in various anti-war and left-wing activities.
I had never heard of the North American Newspaper Alliance so I did some digging in my archives. A few references:
In a 1945 State Department report entitled "Memorandum on the Post-War International Information Program of the United States", on p33 is a passage about the establishment of Press Wireless Inc. It was established on 5 July 1929 with five newspapers as it original stockholders with "nominal stock participation by several news agencies -- the Associated Press, the United Press, King Features Syndicate, and the North American Newspaper Alliance."
Dear fellow historians,
“She was a tiny woman, as little and quick as a sparrow, with warm blue eyes
behind spectacles and a little sparrow colored bun of hair at her neck.
She was changeless and ageless.”
- Martha Gellhorn
