Kansas: "Historical Society Digitizes Old Newspapers"

From the Topeka Capitol Journal:

Kansas has been awarded additional funding by the National Endowment for the Humanities to continue its participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program, according to Kansas Historical Society officials.

As a result, the Kansas Historical Society will digitize an additional 100,000 pages of Kansas newspapers, dating from 1836-1922.

Kansas was brought into the program in 2009 and has successfully digitized 100,086 pages that can be found on the Chronicling America website, chroniclingamerica.loc.gov.
