TOPEKA—The Kansas Historical Society announced that Kansas has been  awarded additional funding by the National Endowment for the Humanities  to continue its participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program  (NDNP).
The Historical Society will digitize an additional 100,000 pages  of Kansas newspapers, dating from 1836-1922.
