As a joint project of the Caldwell Public Library and Caldwell Historical Society, a number of historic Caldwell area newspapers were scanned from microfilm, beginning in 2010. The project was supported by donations in memory of Tad Melichar, and by individual donors including Rod Cook. Additional funding was provided through a grant from the South Central Kansas Library System.
The resulting files have been uploaded to Google Drive for public access, and can be browsed and read online or downloaded for later use.
All of these newspapers are in the public domain, and there are no copyright restrictions to their use.
The newspapers are organized by year and publication; each issue is a separate pdf file.
