In the last ten months, the Connecticut Digital Newspaper Project has digitized and uploaded nearly 80,000 pages of Progressive Era Connecticut newspapers to the free, keyword-searchable digital archive Chronicling America.
For our Fall issue, Connecticut Explored, the magazine of Connecticut history, is looking for story ideas and authors on the topic of things that represent the "Connecticut brand"-things that were created here, invented here, or are associated with Connecticut. Examples that have already been covered in the magazine include firearms and Peter Pan candy. Know of any new research on a topic that would work for this issue? Read anything lately or seen an exhibit that could provide an idea? Got any suggestions for scholars or authors that could pen an interesting article?
