Announcing our Phase III Titles

We are pleased to announce our Phase III newspaper titles:

  • Orleans County Monitor (1913-1922)*

    The Semi-weekly Brattleboro Reformer was published between 1897 and 1901.
  • Rutland Weekly Herald  (1861-1873)*
  • Brattleboro Reformer family (1879-1922)

The above titles will add at least another 100,000 pages of Vermont newspapers to Chronicling America; this work will be completed by the middle of summer 2016. By the end of this phase, an estimated total of 370,000 pages and 73 titles from Vermont newspapers will be available online, for free, and searchable worldwide.

The Bellows Falls Times was published between 1856 and 1903.

This remarkable amount of Vermont historic newspapers online would not be possible without the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library of Congress and our state partners: Ilsley Public Library, Vermont Historical Society, Vermont Department of Libraries, and the University of Vermont. We are indebted, too, to those involved in our Advisory Council and Project Management Group.
