This is awesome news Ron. This is one of the newspapers I have been advocating for the Proquest company to digitize.
It is the only paper I have found that extensively covers many of those all-black towns in the region. Coverage of other black towns in the surrounding states is also good.
Typically these state digitization projects end up as part of the Chronicling America website, but I don't see it there, which makes this discovery even more important.
And I agree, the Oklahoma Historical Society webpage is terrific.
