University of Wyoming (Laramie, WY 82071-2000)
Amanda R. Lehman (Project Director: January 2019 to present)
Bryan Ricupero (Co Project Director: September 2019 to present)
Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Wyoming newspapers, dating from 1863 to 1963, as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The University of Wyoming Libraries requests $208,713 from the NEH over a two-year period to digitize 100,000 pages of Wyoming’s microfilmed newspapers for the Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project. The Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project seeks to partner with the Wyoming State Archives to digitize selected titles from established newspaper holdings. The purpose of the project is twofold: to preserve and duplicate existing microfilm, and to increase accessibility. Known as the “Equality State,” Wyoming is located at the headwaters of four major U.S. river basins with a rich and notable history. Wyoming was the first state that gave women the right to vote, and the first state to elect a woman governor. Alongside these firsts were the Union Pacific Railroad’s scouting and establishment and the Johnson County War. A digitized collection of papers covering these western histories and more will provide an invaluable resource for researchers throughout the world.
