Notes: The Brooklyn Daily Eagle was published from 1841 to 1955 and was revived for a short time from 1960 to 1963. Because of the enormity of the collection, the digitization of the historic Brooklyn Daily Eagle from reels of microfilm is broken into more than one phase. Phase I, which can presently be found on this site, concerns the period from 1841-1902, representing half of the Eagle's years of publication. Access can be gained either by date of issue or by keyword searching. Death notices appear in nearly every issue of the paper, and are listed under the heading
Dates of Coverage: October 1841 - 1902
Print Equivalent: For the print equivalent of this title, see The Brooklyn daily eagle (Brooklyn, N.Y. : I. Van Anden). Please note that there were slight changes in its title over its long run.
