Digitization of 100,000 pages of Missouri newspapers, dating from 1880 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The State Historical Society of Missouri holds a unique and comprehensive collection of historical newspapers and welcomes the opportunity to present select titles from 1880-1922 for placement online through NDNP. The turn of the 20th century is a period of rich history for both state and national studies with newspaper coverage of the following issues among many: Reconstruction; railroad expansion and travel; large immigrant populations; industrialization; labor-focused political movements and parties; agricultural improvements; and the U.S. involvement in World War I. The State Historical Society and its partners at the Missouri Digital Heritage Initiative, Missouri Press Association, and University of Missouri School of Journalism are prepared to digitize and make available 100,000 pages of historic Missouri newspapers to offer a significant contribution to Missouri's cultural heritage and our shared experience as Americans.
