    I know the early issues of Skin Diver have been scanned up to the sixties and maybe the seventies. They were OCR processed to be character readable so the issues could be searched rather than being just images of the text. They were all put up on the Web for a period on a password protected site. However the copyright issue reared its head and the info was taken down.

    I am going to be scanning a good number of Skin Diver and other older dive magazines soon.

    I have them in hand.

    I will post them, and there will not be a password.

    I am going to cut the bindings off soon for the ones that have glue based bindings.

    The magazines that are staple bound will have the staples removed before scan and it will be less destructive.

    I have every issue from the 60’s.
    January 1959 through December 1969 (11 years)
    They could be scanned pretty easy since most are already split and cataloged in three ring binders.
    I had thought about selling them if someone wants to make a reasonable offer.
