Daily Gazette: Massive UAlbany death penalty archive goes digital

The Daily Gazette: Massive UAlbany death penalty archive goes digital. “During his life, M. Watt Espy searched libraries and courthouses across the country gradually building what is widely considered the most comprehensive record of executions in the country. For decades the archive sat in stacks of boxes in his Alabama home. Next year the archive, which is now housed on the far shelves of the special collections library at the University at Albany, will be available digitally to researchers across the world.”
