Jun 18, 2014

Historical items of Doane Robinson, the first secretary of the South Dakota State Historical Society, are now available in the South Dakota Digital Archives.  The Doane Robinson collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts, poetry, genealogical date, census and related statistics and miscellaneous papers.  Matthew Reitzel, Manuscript and Photo Archivist, and Chelle Somsen, State Archivist, both with the South Dakota State Historical Society, discussed the collection along with the rapid process of digitization, working with changing technology and taking history "outside the four walls" in Pierre.
