1950s CMNews now online

HSM is pleased to report that the latest batch of Catskill Mountain News microfilm has been scanned and posted online. They run from Sept. 2, 1949 through Jan. 28, 1955. What a wealth of history these newspapers contain! And they’re searchable! http://history.catskill.net

Phase 1 of this project involved microfilming and digitizing bound volumes of the CMN from 1902-1937. The second phase is digitizing microfilm of the years 1938-73 held by the NYS Library. The work is being done by Hudson Microimaging in Port Ewen, in cooperation with Northern New York Library Association. Funding for the current phase has been generously provided by the O’Connor Foundation of Hobart and an anonymous donor.

The next five years – through 1960 – is expected to be available by spring.
