Dr. Henry Snyder on The California Digital Archive Newspaper Project

Dr. Snyder presents a history of The California Newspaper Project, which preserves and indexes the state’s newspapers published between 1846 and 1922. As an important record of local history in the Golden State, the program is part of a nationwide newspaper preservation project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, which seeks to preserve the country’s journalistic history. Professor Snyder discusses the tasks and challenges of conducting the survey in California, as well as its metamorphosis into a digital archive and the importance of these archives to historical and genealogical research. Retired professor emeritus of history at the University of California, Riverside, and formerly director of the Center for Bibliographical Studies and Research, he is the author of more than thirty scholarly articles. In 2007 Dr. Snyder was honored at a ceremony at the White House, where he was only the sixth faculty member in the UC system to be awarded the coveted National Humanities Medal.
