About the Index

The original newspaper index was a local Works Progress Administration project from the 1930s and the entries were written on note cards.

The Library has retained this card file and, over the course of two years, the information on the cards was keyed in to this database during many hours of work by Library volunteer Joyce Peterson.

This database contains over 25,000 entries. This online index could never have been completed without Joyce's generous donation of her time and her enthusiasm for the project.
