Digital Paxton: Digital Collection, Critical Edition, and Teaching PlatformMain MenuIntroductionWill FentonUsing Digital PaxtonHistorical OverviewWill FentonDigital CollectionKeywordsEducationTranscriptionsPublic OutreachRedrawing HistoryRedrawing History: Indigenous Perspectives on Colonial America, a two-year project funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, connects Native American artists with the Library Company’s rich collections and far-reaching scholarly community. Partnering with artist Weshoyot Alvitre (Tongva), author Lee Francis (Laguna Pueblo), and the indigenous publisher Native Realities Press, the Library Company will publish a graphic novel that reinterprets the Paxton massacre from the perspective of the Conestoga. Dr. Will Fenton, will serve as creative director, connecting the creative team with an advisory board of scholars, local tribal leaders, and educational specialists, and making new archival records accessible via his digital humanities project, Digital Paxton. Published, printed, and distributed by Native American businesses, the graphic novel will include a curriculum to facilitate use in secondary and post-secondary classrooms. Original artwork will be exhibited at the Library Company together with the original collection items that inspired it. And a slate of public programs, including a colloquium and public readings, will engage local audiences; conference presentations will bring the project and its model to academic audiences.CreditsThe Historical Society of Pennsylvania and The Library Company of Philadelphia

Given the scope of materials in Digital Paxton, we invite our visitors to contribute transcriptions using our FromThePage. We are currently soliciting transcriptions of our Friendly Association manuscripts. You may contribute as many or as few transcriptions as you wish--you may even transcribe as a guest.
Given that our transcription conventions differ slightly from those of FromThePage, we encourage visitors to familiarize themselves with our best practices.
To support the effort, Kate Johnson, Marie Pellissier, and Kelly Schmidt, graduate students at Loyola University Chicago, have collected some transcription best practices and created a short guide to using FromThePage. You may access both reference guides by following the path listed below Contents.
At present, about half of the Paxton corpus has been transcribed. Additional transcriptions, accessible as fully-searchable annotations, will be added on a regular basis and announced via social media. Visit Transcribed Records for a complete listing of materials.
If you're an educator and you would like to integrate a transcriptions assignment into your classroom, don't hesitate to contact Will Fenton.
