Shin Sekai / 新世界 [The New World], (San Francisco, CA)

Shin Sekai Masthead

The Shin Sekai Shinbun was one of the oldest Japanese newspapers in San Francisco. Although initially published as the Shin Sekai (1894–1932) by activists in the San Francisco Japanese YMCA, it later dropped its affiliation with the Christian church. It was later published as the Shin Sekai Nichinichi Shinbun (1932–35) and renamed the Shin Sekai Asahi Shinbun (1935–42) after merging with the Hokubei Asahi Shinbun.

『新世界』はサンフランシスコの日本語新聞の中でも古い歴史を誇る。当初、サンフランシスコの日本人キリスト教青年会(YMCA)の青年活動家が『新世界』(1894–1932)を発行、その後、キリスト教会から離脱した。新聞名は『新世界日日新聞』(1932–35)に変更され、『北米朝日新聞』との合流後、『新世界朝日新聞』(1935–42)に変更された。
