I don’t know if they have digitized yet, but when I lived on Capitol Hill in DC in the early 1980s, the Library of Congress had a copy of every daily newspaper published in the U.S. The Jefferson building behind the main LOC housed them. I’m not sure how far back they went then or if they made it a digital project since, but it might be worth checking.
