19th century Terre Haute newspapers to be digitized

Posted by isulib on June 17, 2014

Vigo County Public Library board members on Monday night voted to accept a grant of $19,866 to place 80 years of microfilm newspaper archives in a digital format, meaning it will be available on the Internet in just a few months.

The newspapers to be “digitized” will include multiple Terre Haute papers dated from 1825 to 1905, said Kristi Howe, library director.

Once the work is completed, the newspapers will be available on the VCPL, Wabash Valley Visions and Voices and the Indiana Memories websites.

Some of the newspapers to be included in the digitization include the

  • New Harmony Gazette, 1825-1826
  • Terre Haute Weekly Express, 1868-1872
  • Terre Haute Gazette Daily, 1870-1874
  • Terre Haute Daily News, 1880-1891
  • Saturday Evening Mail
  • Terre Haute Daily Union
