First 44 Volumes of North Carolina Historical Review Digitized and Now Available Online

From the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources:

 The first forty-four volumes (1924-1967) of the North Carolina Historical Review are now available onlinethrough the North Carolina Digital Collections. First published in the spring of 1924, the quarterly Review quickly established and maintains through today a reputation for scholarly excellence.

Now in its ninetieth year of publication by the Historical Publications Section of the Office of Archives and History, the North Carolina Historical Review has provided a forum for scholarship on North Carolina’s rich history for generations of students, historians, and the general population.


The North Carolina Digital Collections, a joint project of the State Archives and the State Library of North Carolina, contain more than 64,000 historic and recent photographs, state government publications, manuscripts and other resources on topics related to North Carolina. The Collections are free and full-text searchable, and bring together content from the State Library and State Archives of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.

Digitization of the North Carolina Historical Review was made possible through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. Through grant making, policy development, and research, IMLS helps communities and individuals thrive through broad public access to knowledge, cultural heritage and lifelong learning.
