Jenny Emery Davidson (Project Director: February 2017 to present)
The Hemingway Legacy Initiative

The Hemingway Legacy Initiative, a portfolio of projects that seeks to preserve Hemingway’s Idaho home and library through educational outreach and a literary residency.

The Hemingway Legacy Initiative is a partnership between The Community Library and The Nature Conservancy(TNC) to honor the life and work of Ernest Hemingway and Sun Valley’s regional history. The Community Library is the lead on the project; TNC is working to gift the house and related artifacts to the Library. The Hemingway Legacy Initiative has three main components. Preservation: We will grow, preserve, and promote the collection of books, photographs, papers, oral histories, and artifacts that relate to Hemingway’s life as it intersects with the American West. Educational Outreach: We will create multimedia educational materials to share artifacts and stories from Hemingway’s home and his time in Idaho with a broad audience of schoolchildren and the general public. Literary Residency: We will protect Hemingway’s Ketchum home as a nature reference library where writers, artists, and scholars can do creative work.
