Here’s another gem of the Packerville, U.S.A. archives — a compilation of the newspaper coverage of the Packers’ 1965, 1966, and 1967 NFL championships, as written at the time in the Milwaukee Journal. The Journal was the afternoon Milwaukee paper until its consolidation with the Milwaukee Sentinel in 1995. Today, it’s one of our two main sources for Packers’ news, although you need an online subscription to read it. This publication spotlights the three championships, as we mentioned. We’ll feature the
1966-67 coverage in the next blog posts.
We love to read the contemporary coverage of sports and news events, because it is interesting to see how things appeared at the time, without 47 years of analysis and hindsight.
