Transcribing The West: Gold Rush & Overland Diaries and Letters, 1849-1877

Transcribing the West is a student-based transcription project held in conjunction with the Department of History undergraduate course, History of the American West, taught by Professor Martha A. Sandweiss. The project began during the 2014 Spring Term with the digitization of sixteen gold rush and overland diary and letter collections. To date, students of the course have transcribed more than 375 pages. The aim of the project is to provide keyword search functionality for the digitized collections.
