Mini-contest: Archives, history & the Web–all your favorite things!

This comes out of a conversation on Twitter this morning in which Mark Matienzo (@anarchivist) said that as far as he knows the Oregon State Archives was the first U.S. archives on the Web. This is demonstrated by this article from the Spring of 1994.

So, here’s your challenge–was there a U.S. archives on Web before the Oregon State Archives?

And, of course, we’d love to hear from our readers about the first non-US archives on the Web. Earlier than 1994?

And, just out of curiosity, do you know when your archives got its first web page? Do you have any evidence of what it looked like?
