From the University of Wyoming:
The Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project, led by University of Wyoming Libraries, has added its first batch of historical newspapers to the Chronicling America database.
The Northern Wyoming Herald and Garland Irrigation Era, published from 1911-1924, as well as a portion of the Cheyenne Daily Leader, widely recognized as Wyoming’s first newspaper, recently became available for anyone to view via the Chronicling America database.
Last year, UW Libraries received a nearly $209,000 grant from NEH to support the Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project over two years. The project involves the digitization of 100,000 pages of Wyoming historical newspapers — dating from 1863-1963 — as part of the state’s participation in the NDNP.
The project began in January after a selection board prioritized newspaper titles late last year.
