Our newspapers from 1879 through 1922 have recently been included in the Kansas Historical Society’s program, which will index and transcribe the newspapers and make them available online. See more about this program in the next paragraph below.

Many historic Kansas newspapers are now available online through Chronicling America at Digitized Newspapers: Chronicling America.  Search full-text versions of The Wichita Eagle, The Dodge City Times, and many more, including four Civil War era Kansas papers. The papers were scanned from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society in partnership with the National Digital Newspaper Program.
