We do not have a subscription to Newspapers.com where digitized, historic editions of the Indianapolis Star and Indianapolis News can be found. You can search via the databases below and take note of the newspaper title, date, and page number. It's a bonus if you can provide the title of the article. Submit a request to receive a PDF version of the article via the Indiana State Library's "Ask-A-Librarian" service.

Both institutions continue to digitize their collections via the Indiana Historical Society Digital Repository and the Indiana State Library Digital Collections.
