Digitized Historic Newspapers from the St. Joseph Public Library!

The St. Joseph Public Library has received a grant to assist with the digitization of historic newspapers beginning with 1862 through 1932.  The newspaper titles include the St. Joseph Morning Herald, the St. Joseph Daily Herald, and the St. Joseph Observer. The project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Missouri State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.  To view the digitized newspapers go to the State Historical Society of Missouri’s Digital Newspaper Project.
