Miss a story about farming in 1900? Or how Vermont newspapers reported our state’s involvement in the Civil War? That’s all about to change, says the Rutland Herald. The University of Vermont was recently awarded a $390,000 National Endowment for the Humanities grant that will support the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project. The project will digitize up to 100,000 pages of historic Vermont newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 and make them available to the public. It will be a collaborative effort between UVM Libraries, the Vermont Department of Libraries, the Ilsley Public Library of Middlebury, and the Vermont Historical Society to select and digitize the newspapers. The selected newspapers will provide a window into Vermont’s participation in American history with such life-altering events as the abolition of slavery, the influenza pandemic, and WWI. There is no specified completion date for the project or where the records will be available.
