The Kent County Daily Times
The Pawtuxet Valley Daily Times
The Times Index was made
possible by a grant from
The Kent County Daily Times has been an important source of
news in Rhode Island for over 100 years. Since the first issue,
published as The Pawtuxet Daily Times on July 20, 1892, to
the present, it has covered the political, social and economic
events that have shaped the lives of the people in Kent County.
The West Warwick
Public Library has the Times on microfilm from the first issue
to the current. With the help of a grant from the Rhode Island
Committee for the Humanities, we have created a personal name
Index so that you can more easily locate information about
the people who lived and worked here in the past. We have
also devised event codes so that you can more easily find
birth, death and marriage information. The Index currently
July 20, 1892 to Sept 9, 1895.
The time span
included in the Index will expand as our work continues.
