The State Historical Society of Missouri has completed the scanning of approximately 66,500 pages of The Word and Way, the historic and valuable source for Missouri Baptist news, totaling more than 150 years of newspaper content. The Missouri Digital Newspaper Project, funded by the State Historical Society, is digitizing this paper on behalf of the Partee Center for Missouri Baptist History. The project is funded by a LSTA Digital Imaging Grant that was awarded to the Partee Center from the Missouri Secretary of State's office earlier this year, and it has progressed at a rapid pace. The grant will be complete at the end of May, and the Archives intends to showcase this newly digitized resource on its new website.
