Good News from Washington, D.C.

In the past week, we have received a couple of progress updates from Washington:

1. Our sample microfilm batch, which shipped out on the 18th of February, survived the rash of inclement weather on the east coast… successfully passed through all the mandated security measures… and has now been received at the Library of Congress!  Their review of our materials will begin shortly.

2. Our first historic newspaper essay, written and researched by Isolde Raftery, has been approved by the National Endowment for the Humanities.  The title covered was the Klamath Falls Evening Herald.  Isolde reports that she found this to be a fascinating, high-quality paper.  In the not-too-distant future, you will be able to read her essay on the Evening Herald (as well as all the other NDNP titles from Oregon) on the Chronicling America website.

The ball is definitely rolling now, and we’re excited to have the project successfully underway!
