The first issue of La Liberté was published on May 20, 1913.
Today, that issue, and many, many more, are available on the Peel site!
Two years ago, we partnered with the Société historique de Saint-Boniface, the owner of the La Liberté archives, to digitize the entire 100 years of the francophone newspaper La Liberté, in honour of its 2013 centennial celebrations. In addition to the coordination efforts of the Société historique de Saint-Boniface, this project benefited from the help of the Manitoba Legislative Library, which provided microfilm reels of the early years of the newspaper, and from funding support from the Société franco-manitobaine and the Université de Saint-Boniface. After many, many scanning and processing hours, the full run of issues will be ready for the June gala launch! May 22, 2013
The Gateway made its debut at the University of Alberta on November 21, 1910. The newspaper was founded when a group of students gathered at the home of Liddy Lloyd to discuss the creation of a student newspaper. Albert Edward Ottewell was The Gateway's first editor-in-chief.
Several U of A publications were digitized as part of the 2008 Centenary celebrations. Showcasing the University's rich history of student, faculty and alumni publication, you can now view and search back issues of Folio, The Trail, The New Trail, Poundmaker and The Gateway. For a full listing of material digitized to mark the 100 year anniversary, please see the Centenary website.
