Chronicling America Collection Reaches New Milestone: Coverage From All 50 States

The Library of Congress (LC) announced that—with the addition of content from New Hampshire—its Chronicling America historical digitized newspapers collection now encompasses papers from all 50 states, plus Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Chronicling America, which is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, provides free online access to U.S.-published newspapers from 1777 to 1963. The LC shares, “Dartmouth College will serve as the New Hampshire state hub, partnering with the New Hampshire State Library, the New Hampshire Historical Society, and the University of New Hampshire Library to identify historical newspapers that reflect the state’s political, economic, and cultural history for inclusion in Chronicling America. Among the first newspapers to be digitized and added to the online repository are the New Hampshire Gazette, the first newspaper known to be printed by an enslaved person; The Dartmouth, founded in 1799 as the Dartmouth Gazette, the nation’s oldest school newspaper; and Among the Clouds, a newspaper printed on top of Mount Washington between 1889 and 1917.”

For details on an upcoming historical newspaper-related online talk and more information, read the press release.
