Michigan Newspaper Project
Between 2002 and 2007 The Clarke Historical Library served as the agency responsible for microfilming newspapers
under the Michigan Newspaper Project. The microfilming phase of the
project was begun in July 2002, after the conclusion of the cataloging
of all Michigan newspapers by the Library of Michigan. Both the
cataloging and the microfilming phases of the project were funded by
grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

advisory board were, which newspapers were selected for filming, and the
