Elmira Star-Gazette (1907-present) is a daily newspaper published by the Gannett Company. The paper covers the Twin Tiers region with a focus on Elmira and Chemung County, New York. It continued the older papers Elmira Gazette and Free Press and Elmira Evening News which merged in 1907.  In 1963, it merged with the Elmira Advertiser and operated until 1967 under the name Star-Gazette and Advertiser. It is currently the only daily newspaper in Chemung County.

Scope:The Elmira Star-Gazette People Files contain newspaper clippings and headshots of the nearly one million people who were mentioned in the paper from 1960 through the early 2000s. People are listed alphabetically by surname.
Notes:The collection was maintained by the Elmira Star-Gazette for their own reference. It does not include those who appeared in the paper regularly such as politicians or other prominent local individuals. Larger files on such individuals were stored separately and remain in the custody of the newspaper.
