Montana Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Montana newspapers dating from 1864 to 1963, as part of the state’s continuing participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Montana Historical Society (MHS) requests funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize an additional 100,000 pages of Montana’s microfilmed newspapers for the Montana Newspaper Digitization Project. The MHS holds the most complete collection of Montana newspapers on microfilm, including all significant titles from the years 1864 (the year the first newspaper was published in Montana) to 1963. The Montana Newspaper Digitization Project will deliver 100,000 digitized newspaper pages to the Library of Congress as well as all required accompanying digital, textual and microfilm deliverables.  This project, which will add newspaper coverage through 1963 to the existing Montana content on Chronlicling America, will increase depth and breadth of coverage to the history of the boom and bust cycles that define much of Montana and western U.S. history.
