Special thanks to all who help make the digitization of our archives possible through The Observer’s Bishop Thomas G. Doran Preservation Project.

Donations to the Bishop Thomas G. Doran Preservation Project, launched on the occasion of Bishop Doran’s 50th year of priesthood in 2011, make it possible for the public to view these historic issues. Volumes through 2002 will be scanned and made searchable as funding is available. Donations of any size can assist The Observer Catholic Newspaper in reaching its goal. For as little as $1,000, an individual, family or organization can sponsor a specific year, to honor a significant date in their family or history. To become a preservation partner, donors can send their gift, with their name and address, to The Observer, Bishop Thomas G. Doran Preservation Project, P.O. Box 7044, Rockford, Illinois 61125.
