Two Ameritech Competition Collection Winners added to
American Memory online collections

With a gift from Ameritech, the Library of Congress has sponsored a
three-year competition to enable public, research, and academic
libraries, museums, historical societies, and archival institutions
(except federal institutions) to create digital collections of primary
resources. These digital collections which appear at the American
Memory Web site <http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/amhome.html>
complement and enhance the collections of the National Digital Library
Program at the Library of Congress. The most recent additions to
the Ameritech collections available online are "Traveling Culture:
Circuit Chautauqua in the Twentieth Century" from the University
of Iowa and "Prairie Settlement: Nebraska Photographs and Family
Letters" from the Nebraska State Historical Society.

"Traveling Culture: Circuit Chautauqua in the Twentieth Century"
comprises 7,949 publicity brochures, promotional advertisements
and flyers for 4,545 events given by lecturers, teachers, preachers,
statesmen and politicians, actors, singers and opera stars, glee clubs
and concert companies, magicians, whistlers and other performers
who traveled the circuits at the beginning of the 20th century. The
brochures are drawn from the Redpath Chautauqua Collection,
which is housed at the University of Iowa Libraries. The collection
home page can be found at <http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/award98/iauhtml/>

"Prairie Settlement: Nebraska Photographs and Family Letters" integrates
two collections from the holdings of the Nebraska State Historical
Society, the Solomon D. Butcher photographs and the letters of the
Uriah W. Oblinger family. Together they illustrate the story of
settlement on the Great Plains. Approximately 3,000 glass plate
negatives crafted by Butcher record the process of settlement in
Nebraska between 1886 and 1912. Butcher photographed actively
in central Nebraska including Custer, Buffalo, Dawson and Cherry
counties. The approximately 3,000 pages of Oblinger family letters
discuss land, work, neighbors, crops, religious meetings, problems
with grasshoppers, financial problems, and the Easter Blizzard of 1873.
Uriah Oblinger came from Indiana to Fillmore County, Nebraska in 1873
to claim a homestead for his family. In the eloquent letters exchanged
between Uriah and his wife Mattie, and in letters to other family
members, Oblinger expresses very personal insight into the joy, despair,
and determination in their struggle to establish a home on the prairie.
The collection home page can be found at
