The Hawaii Digital Newspaper Project, a part of the National Digital Newspaper Program developed by NEH and the Library of Congress, will digitize approximately 100,000 English-language newspaper pages between the years of 1880 and 1922 during the two-year grant period. Newspapers digitized as part of the grant award will be included in the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America database.
