What's New in the Delaware Public Archives Collection
1962 Storm Aerial Photographs
This photograph collection consists of images of Delaware’s costal region affected by the 1962 storm. The photographs show the storm damage to Cape Henlopen, Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, Indian River and Bethany Beach, documenting storm damage sites and recovery progress months after the storm.
The Delaware Annual Reports Collection provides an on-line repository into which state agencies can place their annual and biennial reports, as called for in a 2014 update of the Delaware Freedom of Information Act. That update requires all executive branch agencies that are required to submit annual or biennial reports to electronically post copies to a designated state website.
