In addition to CRSP and Datastream (see right), the following resources have historical stock prices:

Yahoo Historical Prices 
Daily data with split/dividend adjustments.  Does not cover delisted stocks. Downside is that the data is not 100% accurate.

QuantQuote Historical Stock Data  
Click on the Free Data tab to access historical data.  At present, covers 1988 through mid 2013 for all symbols currently active in the S&P 500. Less errors than Yahoo but covers fewer stocks.
