Early Issues of the Southern Pines Pilot (1929-1942) Now Available Online

Over 600 issues of The Pilot, from Southern Pines, N.C., are now available on DigitalNC.  Founded in 1920 in Vass, N.C., The Pilot has provided continuous coverage of Moore County communities, especially Southern Pines and Pinehurst.  The issues available online now range in date from September 13, 1929 through October 30, 1942.  We’ll work on earlier issues, beginning in 1920, in late 2012.

The Pilot is the first of many titles that will be added to the North Carolina Newspapers project in 2012.  It was nominated for digitization by the Southern Pines Public Library. We’ll post announcements here as more titles are available.
