Historic Hood River and Wasco County newspapers to be digitized
Historic newspapers from Hood River and Wasco Counties will soon be made available online thanks to several generous grants. Titles to be digitized include 1889-1922 issues of the Hood River Glacier, 1889-1900 issues of The Dalles Weekly Chronicle (1901-1922 are already available digitally), and the 1914-1930 issues of the Maupin Times. Early issues of the Hood River News also are closer to being digitized thanks to recent grants from the Hood River Cultural Trust and Gorge Community Foundation.
All of these titles will be digitized by experts at the University of Oregon's Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP). Once digitized, the titles will be available on the Historic Oregon Newspapers, http://oregonnews.uoregon.edu. In addition to simply making images of the newspapers available, the full text of the articles will be searchable, making the newspapers accessible in ways not possible before. UO is also committed to the long-term preservation of the digitized newspapers, helping ensure future generations can access these critical documents.
The Hood River Glacier was selected as the top title to be digitized this year by the ODNP. The Glacier was chosen in part because of its coverage of Japanese immigration to the Columbia River Gorge as well as the birth of Hood River County's fruit industry. In addition to being made available on the Historic Oregon Newspapers website, the Glacier will also be put on the Library of Congress' Chronicling America site, http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov. The 1901-1922 issues of The Dalles Weekly Chronicle were digitized as part of an earlier cycle of this grant.
Two Wasco County newspapers, the 1889-1900 issue of The Dalles Weekly Chronicle and the entire run of the Maupin Times (1914-1930) will also be digitized thanks to a $3,800 grant from Google's The Dalles Data Center community grant program.
For more information, or to contribute to the project, please contact Buzzy Nielsen, Library Director at Hood River County Library District, at 541-387-7062 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program can be found at http://oregonnews.uoregon.edu.
