Preserving Historic Archival Collections

The purchase of archival quality shelving and disaster and recovery supplies to help preserve and store the university's archival collections documenting the history of Southern Maryland from the 18th century to the present. The collections include prints by Theodore de Bry, a 16th-century engraver whose works illustrate early English settlements in North America. The university's significant manuscript collection documents the business and social activites of several prominent local families.

Funding will support the purchase of improved storage for the Southern Maryland Study Center's permanent archival collections. Additionally, NEH grant funds will support the purchase of disaster recovery supplies and equipment to satisfy disaster preparedness objectives.
