South Dakota State Historical Society Journal

The first 32 years of South Dakota History are now available free of charge in digital form on the South Dakota Historical Society’s website.

The press release is:

South Dakota Rest Area

To get to the journals themselves, click on the link above and then on the blue button above the press release that says Journals. This will open up a list of links to the journals broken down by range of volumes in a column on the right hand side. There is also a link to an index in PDF form so you can find what journal you want and then find it on the list. Each individual journal has a list of the article titles and authors, with the title being clickable full text. They appear on the volume list in reverse chronological order (the earliest one is at the bottom). They open as printable PDFs, one per article. Although they had a “fire sale” on back issues within the last couple of years (I loaded up on a lot of them then), some back issues are also still available as paper copies. The ones without paper copies available say OUT OF PRINT in red at the top of the list of articles for that issue. The ones without that notation are available for sale from the South Dakota Historical Society.

You’ll notice several articles of interest to Laura fans. On PCs hit Control-F to bring up a find box on the Index PDF and search for Wilder or whatever you’re specifically looking for.
