Northwest Passage

The Northwest History Database contains material of significance to the history of the Northwest during the first half of the twentieth century. The core of the database is the Northwest newspaper clippings collection. The newspaper articles were collected and organized in the late 1930's by dedicated historians working for the Works Progress Administration. The database also includes primary source material such as government reports, laws, maps, etc. pertaining to the settlement and development of the northwest. In addition the site has extensive links to other related web sites, such as Native American cultural sources, relevant dam websites and important laws and legislation.
