Endowing the Program in Early American Economy and Society

Endowment for research fellowships, acquisitions, and staff salaries for the Program in Early American Economy and Society.

The Library Company of Philadelphia, an independent research library for the study of American history, seeks a $1 million "We the People" Challenge Grant to endow its innovative Program in Early American Economy and Society. Now in its fifth year, PEAES (the only program of its kind in the nation) is well-positioned to illuminate the economic aspects of the nation's founding, and it has already become the foremost center for scholarship in early American economic history through its publications, conferences, colloquia, fellowships, acquisitions, and website. Income from the $4-million endowment will support three essential PEAES activities: additional humanities staff, long-term research fellowships, and acquisitions.
