Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia (Philadelphia, PA 19103-6510)
Katherine H. Haas (Project Director: May 2015 to present)

Environmental Monitoring Upgrades for Historic Rosenbach Collections

Upgraded environmental monitoring equipment for the Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia.  The Rosenbach, which affiliated with the Free Library of Philadelphia in 2013, holds the personal collection of rare book, manuscript, and art dealers Dr. A.S.W. and his brother Philip Rosenbach, who helped to build the holdings at the Folger and Huntington Libraries.  Notable items include the sole surviving copy of Benjamin Franklin’s first Poor Richard’s Almanac; the manuscript of James Joyce’s Ulysses; the papers of modernist poet Marianne Moore; Bram Stoker’s notes for Dracula; rare editions of books by Herman Melville, Charles Dickens, and Lewis Carroll; and art objects including Egyptian sculpture, English furniture, and American portraiture.  The museum hosts many activities for the public, including regular exhibitions, hands-on tours, reading groups, a Bloomsday celebration, and research hours.  The organization has also partnered with local elementary schools, inspiring projects such as studying the Yellow Fever epidemic, learning about poetry through the letters of Langston Hughes, and military base students writing to their own deployed family members after reading Civil War soldiers’ letters to their families.  A 2006 PAG supported the purchase of environmental monitoring equipment, but those data loggers are no longer accurate and cannot be recalibrated.  This equipment would be replaced with new models and a calibrator, based on recommendations from a 2011 risk assessment.

The Rosenbach was founded in the first half of the twentieth century by Dr. A.S.W. Rosenbach and his brother Philip, preeminent dealers in rare books. The brothers' personal collection features treasures that they were unable to part with, including the only surviving copy of Benjamin Franklin's first Poor Richard's Almanac and the manuscript of James Joyce's Ulysses. The Rosenbach is home to a collection of nearly 400,000 rare books, manuscripts, and fine and decorative art objects, including some of the best-known literary and historical objects in the world. The Rosenbach requests funds to improve environmental monitoring equipment, including new data loggers to monitor temperature and humidity, and testing equipment. These tools will help maintain appropriate and stable environmental conditions for the objects in the collection. Monitoring environmental conditions has a direct impact on the long-term preservation of the Rosenbach's collections and the ability to exhibit them safely.

NEH Fellowships at the Newberry Library

The equivalent of three twelve-month residential fellowships a year for three years.

The Newberry Library requests funding for three years of fellowship support to continue a highly successful program of residential humanities fellowships at the Newberry Library. Over three decades this program has generated a rich harvest of humanities scholarship while also serving as a catalyst for the creation of a dynamic intellectual community within this research institution. This proposal details the achievements and impact of the program and outlines the Library's procedures for publicizing the program, selecting the fellows, and fostering their scholarly activities.

Brown University (Providence, RI 02912-9100)
Robert Scholes (Project Director: July 2009 to present)

The Modernist Journals Project: The Crisis, The Egoist, The Little Review, Others

Incorporating four early 20th-century American and British periodicals, "The Crisis," "The Egoist" (including its predecessors, "The Freewoman" and "The New Freewoman"), "The Little Review," and "Others," into a digital archive of modernist journals.

The Modernist Journals Project is proposing to digitize four culturally-significant magazines from the early 20th century: "The Crisis," "The Egoist" (including its predecessors, "The Freewoman" and "The New Freewoman"), "The Little Review," and "Others." The first of these journals is the official organ for the NAACP, edited by W. E. B. Du Bois; the last three are "little magazines" famous for publishing such authors as James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, and Marianne Moore. The digital editions we produce, amounting to 14,560 pages, will be the first for all of these rare journals, which will be made available to the public (without charge) on the MJP website (www.modjourn.org). Public access to these digital editions will also be enhanced by our enabling sophisticated searching of the journals (through OCR text conversion, TEI text encoding, and MODS cataloguing) and by our framing each journal with scholarly materials that will foreground its distinctive value.

A Biography of American Poet Marianne Moore (1887-1972)

An NEH Fellowship would provide me with uninterrupted time to write my biography of American poet Marianne Moore (1887-1972). Although many scholarly monographs on Moore have appeared in recent decades, there has been only one book-length biography. It was written without the permission of the Moore estate and hence quotes no unpublished sources. Because my project has "the full support" of the estate and because I am willing to investigate thoroughly Moore's familial and professional relationships, the biography I am writing should be both more reliable to scholars and more engaging to the general reader.

The Relationship Between Modern Painting and Modern Poetry, Especially the Poetry of Marianne Moore

To develop a book manuscript defining more fully the fundamental difference between and limits of each medium, in order to speak more precisely about the possibility of influence and translation of techniques. The uniqueness of the modernist version of "the sister arts" will be developed. Moore, William Carlos Williams and Gertrude Stein developed their art partly in response to cubist experiments in Europe and America. More recently, the "New York School" of poets, especially Frank O'Hara and John Ashberry, have worked in close association with abstract expressionists. Manscript will explore the relationship between the arts and the translation of those ideas from one medium to another.
