Need Representative news photo for every year 1935-1995

Guys - thisn't isn't a motorcycle question but I can't think of whom else to ask. My dad's 70th b-day party is in the planning stages and I need to find a website where I can download a 'current event' 4x6" newsworthy photo from each of his 70 years (1935+). The idea is to play a game with the partiers whereby they pick the correct year for each photo.

I just can't think of where to find them all in one location. Any ideas???????

local library

Most major libraries will have NYTimes and the Washington Post cataloged. If your library has been around for a very long time, then you might be able to find microfische of major newspaper prints dating way back. Explain your situation to the librarian and hopefully they will be nice enough to help you gather all the material.

There was once a website that listed all the top events of the year you were born. You could try googling that.

I know of a website that has attempted to have a picture of BMW bike for every year one was made. PM if you want the address.

David - if my dad was a bmw motoman, I'd love the idea - 'pin the bike on the year'....he is a political news junkie though!

Guys - keep the suggestions coming! But I need political/current event PHOTO's (i.e. '69 - man landing on the moon, Nixon waving goodbye after resigning, Alan Shepard in the Mercury spacecraft, BoSox winning te series, etc.). Photo's that are instantly recognizable but maybe the year is muddy.

I'm still stumped. But I just know the source can be found!

I don't know if you want to use it for every year, but, TIME magazine always has a "Person of the Year" award and has a web site that has a picture of the cover for every year since the 1920s.

I also found a site that has the International Picture of the Year, but the archive links are all broken. You could email the webmaster and see if they can forward them to you or fixt the links (if it is an actively monitored site).
