Answer

This is a topic that is a little obscure and will take several steps, but we were able to find some great sources.

  1. All EBSCO History Databases
    Generally, the best place to start for any historical research is our historical databases. Go to the Databases by Subject LibGuide and click on the History & Geneaology tab to get started (link below). You can save some time by choosing All EBSCO History Databases, which allows you search all EBSCO history databases simultaneously. Type in Armistice Day blizzard to get your results. As of today, these was one appropriate article.
  2. Google News Archives
    Google has worked with limited newspapers to digitize materials via the News Archive Partner Program. The date to which these newspapers go back varies by newspaper, but many go back to the mid 19th century, and some even earlier. Whether they cover any particular topic is rather random, however we did find several very nice articles that would work by typing in Armistice Day blizzard as we did in the EBSCO databases (see link, below).
  3. National Oceanic And Atmospheric Admisnistraion (NOAA)
    Since this is a weather related historical event, NOAA, is also a great place to find information. Go to NOAA (link below) and type in Armistice Day blizzard again to get lots of great information, including statistics, personal accounts, photographs and more.
