70 Newspaper Titles Added to DigitalNC

Headmast of July 28, 1916 issue of The Advance from Elizabeth City

This week we have another 70 titles up on DigitalNC including over 1,000 issues of The Robesonian, 1,000 issues of The Western Sentinel, 3,000 issues of The Reidsville Review, 4,000 issues of The News and Observer, and almost 4,000 issues of the Salisbury Evening Post!

In the March 8th, 1914 issue of The News and Observers we have an article detailing a practice game played by the Baltimore Orioles while in Fayetteville. This happens to be the game where a 19 year old George Herman “Babe” Ruth hit his first home run as a professional baseball player. Ruth was also given his iconic nickname “Babe” while in Fayetteville on this trip.

Over the next year, we’ll be adding millions of newspaper images to DigitalNC. These images were originally digitized a number of years ago in a partnership with Newspapers.com. That project focused on scanning microfilmed papers published before 1923 held by the North Carolina Collection in Wilson Special Collections Library. While you can currently search all of those pre-1923 issues on Newspapers.com, over the next year we will also make them available in our newspaper database as well. This will allow you to search that content alongside the 2 million pages already on our site – all completely open access and free to use.

This week: 25 Titles including over 5,000 issues of The Wilmington Morning Star

Header for The North-Carolina Magazine from August 31, 1764

In following with our collaboration with newspapers.com, we have another large batch of newspapers this week! These images were originally digitized a number of years ago in a partnership with Newspapers.com. That project focused on scanning microfilmed papers published before 1923 held by the North Carolina Collection in Wilson Special Collections Library. While you can currently search all of those pre-1923 issues on Newspapers.com, over the next year we will also make them available in our newspaper database as well. This will allow you to search that content alongside the 2 million pages already on our site – all completely open access and free to use.

This week we have over 5,000 issues of The Wilmington Morning Star. The paper was founded in 1867 by former Confederate Major William H. Bernard and played a role in stoking the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. In November of 1898 a biracial government was legitimately elected in Wilmington, which the paper claimed to be fraudulent. Earlier that year, Daily Record editor, Alexander Manly, published an article proposing that it was possible for white women to be attracted to black men. The Morning Star found this to be “vile and slanderous” and riled a mob of angry white supremacists to burn down the paper’s office then claim that they had not started the violence. The following clippings are from November 9, 10, and 11. The day before the massacre, the day of, and the day after.

A clipping from the November 9, 1898 issue of The Wilmington Morning Star with the headline "White Supremacy" A clipping from the November 10, 1898 issue of The Wilmington Morning Star with the headline "Citizens Aroused"A clipping from the November 11, 1898 issue of The Wilmington Morning Star with the headline "Bloody Conflict With Negroes"

Starting this week, we will have an update every Friday on new titles being added to our newspaper collection during a year-long project to bring already digitized content from the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) and Newspapers.com onto the DigitalNC newspaper platform. 

This week we are sharing a list of the many new titles on DigitalNC that were brought to us by the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) in conjunction with the North Carolina Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries. The NDNP is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress with the intention of creating a vast, searchable database of newspapers and other historical documents. While you can currently search all of the NDNP issues on the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America website, adding those same issues to our  newspaper database will allow you to search that content alongside the other papers on DigitalNC.  The titles in this batch include:

Over the next few weeks we will be uploading more newspapers from NDNP. If you want to see all of the newspapers we have available on DigitalNC, you can find them here.
