The B-B-Blizzard

Posted by Jocelyn Wehr (Digital Archivist) on Dec 14, 2010

The B-B-Blizzard, a single-issue newspaper out of Kinsley, Kansas, was a collaborative effort of stranded train passengers caught in a blizzard in January 1886. Editor F. Weber Benton, with the help of the local Kinsley Graphic and Kinsley Mercury publishers, hoped "to give immortality to events that might otherwise be lost to history."

Find other unique and interesting newspapers online by visiting the Chronicling America website, a collection of digitized newspapers from across the country that gives you the ability to search for keywords within the text. Be sure to follow the most recent digitization efforts of Kansas newspapers at the Kansas Historical Society.
