Historical Society of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA 19107-5699)
Cary Hutto (Project Director: July 2019 to present)
Improving Access to Women's History Collections at HSP

The arrangement and description of four manuscript collections, totaling 149 linear feet, that document women’s history in the greater Philadelphia region from the 1860s to the present.  Portions of each collection would also receive conservation treatment and be rehoused for long-term preservation.

The Historical Society of Pennsylvania seeks $124,266 for an 18-month project (total project cost: $203,161) to arrange, preserve, and describe four significant, and in-need, manuscript collections (encompassing 149 linear feet of material) that document women’s history, particularly relating to the civic engagement of women through clubs and organizations. By improving access to and preservation of these collections, the project will support research in women’s history and related fields, and further HSP’s goal to ensure that 100 percent of our collections are documented, protected, and made available for study.
