The Newcastle Sun was a newspaper published in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. It had previously been published as The Northern Times.

History

The Northern Times was first published in 1916.[1] In 1918 the Times was purchased by Sir Hugh Denison, publisher of The Sun who changed the name to The Newcastle Sun.[2] The Newcastle Sun was acquired by Newcastle Morning Herald in 1936 and continued until 1980 when it ceased publication.[3]

A newspaper named The Northern Times (with the alternative title Northern Times and Newcastle Telegraph) had previously been published in Maitland from 1857-1860.[4][5] The Northern Telegraph resumed publication in 1916, before being absorbed by the Northern Times in 1918.[6][5]

Digitisation

The paper has been digitised as part of the Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program project of the National Library of Australia.[7][8]
