Actually, I found out about this about a week ago.
Steve Cottle of I Love Comix had a Kickstarter Project to purchase and scan a large collection of newspaper comics. It looks like he already raised the funds to buy the collection, but it sounds like he could use more funds to pay for rent on a climate-controlled storage place until they can be scanned. Definitely a worthy cause.
And here's the cover for Our Flag Comics #1, August 1941.
