The Portal to Texas History

The Galveston and Texas History Center is currently partnering with the University of North Texas to digitize the center’s collection of the Galveston Tribune and other historic newspapers. The University of North Texas is providing quality scans of the original papers at the Portal to Texas History.

The Tribune digitization project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, grant number TXT-20007, to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. (2020)
