Nebraska History Magazine Table of Contents

Nebraska History is a quarterly, illustrated magazine that explores Nebraska’s history and culture through original articles and historical images from our extensive collections.

Each story features new research or newly-published historical materials; each is reviewed by qualified scholars before publication. The magazine also features book reviews and our popular “P.S.” — an image we’ve uncovered that has its own story to tell.

History Nebraska members receive Nebraska History as a benefit of membership — learn more by clicking here.

It’s history you won’t find anywhere else.

Below you will find articles printed in the magazine over the last century. We are currently working to make these articles accessible digitally. In the meantime, if you would like to request a digital copy of an article, please contact our editor David Bristow by email at [email protected].

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
