Boston Phoenix publisher donates archives to Northeastern
The Boston Globe - 11/20/2015
The Boston Phoenix is gone, but the work done by the alternative weekly for nearly four decades lives on.
Stephen Mindich, owner and publisher of the pioneering publication, has donated the paper’s extensive archives to Northeastern University’s Snell Library Archives and Special Collections, where they will be available for members of the public to peruse. (Mindich could not be reached Friday.)
The gratis gift, arranged by former Phoenix media columnist and current Northeastern journalism professor Dan Kennedy, also includes early issues of The Real Paper; the Phoenix’s sister publications in Worcester, Portland, and Providence; Boston After Dark; the alternative programming of radio station WFNX-FM; and Stuff and Stuff at Night magazines.
