15 months after the start of this project, we are delighted to announce we have completed the transcription phase of the Harry Watkins Diary project -- all 1180 pages of the diary have been read, transcribed, and fully encoded by one of our fabulous team members allowing us to read and search his entire diary.

The past year and a half has been filled with a variety of advances, from assembing our staff and advisory board, to finalizing our transcription policy and TEI schema, to receiving several grants which have funded research trips, software, and student assistants. Of course, we still have the very time-consuming work of tandem proofreading each entry (twice!) ahead of us, but our current milestone is a significant one!
