Hadassah Archives: Record Group 21: Architectural Records Oversized Materials Housing

Purchase of storage furniture for oversized architectural records, including over 1,000 linear feet of materials in the Hadassah Archives that document activities of the Women’s Zionist Organization of America. Founded in 1912, Hadassah sponsors a variety of educational, medical, and cultural programs in both the United States and Israel.

This grant would support the American Jewish Historical Society (“AJHS”) with the expansion of storage for oversized materials from the Hadassah Archives collection, specifically Record Group 21: Architectural Records which is comprised of building plans for projects with Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus and in Ein Kerem and buildings managed by Youth Aliyah, Hadassah Youth Services, Young Judea, the National office, Hadassah Israel Education Services, Educational Services and the Hadassah Medical Organization from the 1920s-2000s. The Hadassah Archives is one of the most valuable collections at the AJHS and the most utilized collection in the reading room at the Center for Jewish History (“the Center”). AJHS is committed to preserving and safeguarding the materials for long-time storage and making the materials available for researchers worldwide who come to view the records in the collection.
