Delaware: Digital Archives

Delaware is, of course, the “First State”, so it makes sense that they would have some rather fine historical materials available at their disposal. This website was created by the state of Delaware to bring together some of their vast historical holdings, including many materials from the Delaware Public Archives. First-time visitors can get oriented by looking at their 360-degree panoramic view of the state’s Mabel Lloyd Ridgely Research Room. The “100 Stories” area is a must-see, as it celebrates the Delaware Public Archives with stories using photographs, maps, original legislation, and more. Further along, the site also includes a photograph archive, important 17th century documents from the state’s time as a colony, and a clutch of audio clips. These clips include interviews with NAACP leaders on civil rights in the state and a clip from the 1961 Delaware Music Camp.
