The digitization of 100,000 pages of Kansas newspaper titles, dating from 1860 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Kansas Historical Society (KSHS) requests $259,353.60 as part of the fiscal years 2010-2011 cycle of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) to digitize 100,000 pages of English language Kansas newspapers published between 1860 and 1922 for inclusion on the Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers website. KSHS is the only major repository of Kansas newspapers. An advisory board of scholars, teachers, archivists, and librarians will assist in the selection of titles to be scanned. Selected titles may focus on the Farmers' Alliance and Populist movements of the 1890s, for which the Kansas Populist leaders were nationally known, or on the settlement of the state during the Free State/Slavery controversy (1860s) and the later cattle drives/cowtown era (1880s). KSHS looks forward to participating in the NDNP project and adding Kansas' story to Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers.
