The easiest way would be to use a newspaper, since they are published every day. Click on Databases on our Library Home page in the "Featured Links" section to the right of the page.
|Click on "Newspapers" on the Database and Article Search Page.|
|Click on Proquest Newstand.|
|Once in Proquest Newsstand, scroll down to Date Range and change the pulldown to "On this Date".|
|Then click on "Full Text" and then specify your date with the pulldowns for month and date, and type in the year and click "Search".|
|Look through the results for an article that seems to meet your needs. Click on the "Full Text" link to read the article.|
If you want to narrow your results, you can specify a single newspaper, such as the Los Angeles Times by typing in that name and changing the pulldown to "Publication Title -PUB" and then doing the search.
