Extra! Extra!

We expect to begin posting our first digitized content from Oregon newspapers in the summer/fall of 2010.

In the meantime, you can still revisit Oregon’s history through the Library of Congress – National Endowment for the Humanities’ Chronicling America website. Keyword-searching the archived material from states that are already participating in NDNP can yield a wealth of articles about Oregon.

Over the next several weeks, we will be posting to this blog some links to get you started and  to convey some idea of what’s available.  We hope these historic materials will whet your appetite for the full online resource that’s to come!

*****

Our first item comes from the San Francisco Call, and commemorates the opening of the historic Lewis & Clark Centennial Exposition in Portland:

“Fair Recalls Heroic Deeds Of Century Ago,”  from the San Francisco Call (CA), May 28, 1905

"Lewis & Clark," from the San Francisco Call, May 28, 1905, p.17
