Idaho Digital Newspaper Program

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Idaho newspapers published between 1863 and 1922, as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Idaho State Historical Society proposes to digitize Idaho's historic newspapers published before 1923 as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. Idaho's newspaper content would expand Chronicling America's content to include this critical region in the post-Civil War settlement of the West, including economic activities like farming, ranching, and mining and covering significant developments such as statehood, relations with native populations, homesteading and the expansion of the railroad and telegraph across the continent. Like other Northwest states, Idaho played a significant role in the development of the US Forest Service and the nation's earliest awareness of wilderness conservation.
