Throughout this past year, the Libraries’ team of staff, interns, and volunteers has worked diligently to digitize photos, newspaper articles, film, radio and news broadcasts and as a result, have assembled the most comprehensive source of information regarding the 1972 Flood.
More information on the project can be found on the Black Hills Flood page and a digital archive containing photos and documents on the 1972 Flood can be found in our online collection.
