The Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society has been around since the early twentieth century, and it has chronicled many aspects of the state's cultural and social development. Recently, the Illinois State Library was able to utilize funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to create this digital archive of select Journal volumes. Currently, the digital archive includes all of the volumes from 1950 to 2006, and more will be added in the future. Visitors might want to get their feet wet by looking over the Autumn 1955 issue, which features articles such as "The Haymarket Riot and the Trail of the Anarchists" and "Charles G. Dawes and the McKinley Campaign". Also, visitors can use the search feature here to look for particular words and phrases of interest.
