New blog from the folks who bring the Hawaii newspapers to Chronicling America, 2013.

I just came across this new (as of summer 2013) blog from the Hawaii Digital Newspaper Project. They are the ones who take care of the Hawaii newspapers on Chronicling America. On the blog are posts about the progress of the project itself, as well as random articles from the English-language newspapers. I am looking forward to see what they find in the future about the past!
