About 40 years of the Waihi Daily Tele­graph can now be read on­line.

Re­searchers from the Waihi Arts Cen­tre and Mu­seum As­so­ci­a­tion have digi­tised miss­ing edi­tions pub­lished dur­ing World War II, be­tween 1936 and 1941 and from 1943 to 1944.

It means that most of the news­pa­per’ edi­tions be­tween 1904 and 1944 can be read on the Na­tional Library of New Zealand’s web­site, Pa­pers past.

The project is sup­ported by the James Say Trust and Waihi Arts Cen­tre and Mu­seum As­so­ci­a­tion Com­mit­tee, which thanked the trust for their fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion.

The Waihi Daily Tele­graph printed its first is­sue on March 1901 and cov­ered a range of lo­cal news in the min­ing in­dus­try, Waihi Bor­ough Coun­cil meet­ings as well as over­seas cable sto­ries.

Hau­raki District Li­braries funded the ear­lier edi­tions be­tween 1904 and 1909 be­fore the mu­seum re­searchers have digi­tised edi­tions be­tween 1918 and 1944.
