Nelson Daily News digitized

The latest newspaper to be added to UBC’s collection of BC historical newspapers is the Nelson Daily News. Thanks to funding secured by Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History, the editions of 1902 to early 1913 are now available online, with the remainder of 1913 through 1920 to be added in the coming weeks.

The Daily News had a reputation as West Kootenay’s paper of record, with a circulation that exceeded Nelson’s population. It was distributed from the Okanagan to Alberta and had a network of 40 community correspondents, making it valuable to historians from throughout southeastern BC and beyond.
