The San Antonio Register, the city's second black-oriented, locally focused, weekly newspaper, was founded by its owner and publisher, Valmo C. Bellinger, and first appeared in print on April 10, 1931. For the next forty-seven years, 2,491 consecutive editions, including three extras, were produced without interruption before the paper finally collapsed in late 1978, then changed ownership early in 1979. The Register has been digitized and made available online through the Texas Digital Newspaper Program. The issues begin on May 29, 1931 and run through December 2000. The keyword searchable digital newspaper scans provide an invaluable record of San Antonio's African-American community in the 20th Century.
