PHOENIX – The Duncan Arizonian is the newest newspaper featured by the Arizona Memory Project from the State of Arizona Research Library, as part of a partnership with the University of Arizona and a grant from the National Digital Newspaper Program.
Duncan, Arizona is known for being the childhood home of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, and The Duncan Arizonian was one of approximately 40 new titles selected to be digitized during this two-year grant cycle.
“We chose the Duncan Arizonian, because we wanted to fill in some gaps from early territorial newspapers that were not yet digitized, and because the Duncan Arizonian reported on Greenlee County, as well as neighboring Graham County. It chronicled Arizona’s transition from a territory to statehood,” said Sativa Peterson, NDNP grant project director and news content program manager for the State of Arizona Research Library.
New newspaper titles continue to be added as this grant cycle concludes. The Duncan Arizonian includes issues from 1911 through 1913. It will be available indefinitely and can be viewed for free on any digital device at https://azmemory.azlibrary.gov/digital/collection/darizonian/search.
