Colgate University (Hamilton, NY 13346-1386)
Sarah Keen (Project Director: May 2012 to present)

Preservation Assessment and Workshop for Archives and Special Collections, Colgate University Library

A preservation assessment of the university's institutional records and special collections comprising about 8,600 volumes and 1,500 linear feet of archives and manuscript collections. Among them are the records of the Baptist Education Society of the State of New York that document the university's involvement with abolitionist activities and national politics leading up to the Civil War; the papers of the Colgate family that created the present-day Colgate-Palmolive Company; materials on William Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot, Joseph Conrad, George Bernard Shaw, and John Cowper Powys; assorted local history materials; and the papers of university faculty, alumni, and community members.

Colgate University's Case Library seeks a Preservation Assistance grant to engage a consultant for (1) a general preservation assessment for the Special Collections and University Archives department and (2) a workshop on mold. The materials in the archives and special collections include rare books, manuscript collections, University archives, and local history materials. The preservation assessment will focus on broad collections management, staffing, and environmental and storage concerns, and a written report will propose and prioritize plans for improvements. At a later date, the consultant will present a half-day workshop for the staff on mold, preventing mold, and responding to mold outbreaks. Both the assessment survey and the workshop will be carried out by consultant Karen E.K. Brown, Preservation Librarian at the University at Albany, NY.

Swarthmore College (Swarthmore, PA 19081-1390)
Amy M. McColl (Project Director: May 2011 to present)

Preservation and Disaster-Preparedness Assessment to Preserve the Library's Special Collections

A preservation assessment of the College's special collections, to include the Rare Book Room, the Friends Historical Library, and the Peace Collection. The assessment would help identify preservation priorities and lead to disaster preparation strategies for the three collections, which are in regular use by students and a wide variety of humanities scholars interested in Quakerism and the history of social reform movements in North America during the last two centuries.

Swarthmore College requests an NEH grant to support an assessment by an expert consultant of the current preservation practices of its Rare Book Room, Friends Historical Library, and Peace Collection, and an assessment of disaster preparedness procedures for McCabe Library, which houses these collections. Significant holdings include the W.H. Auden Collection; volumes from Thomas Jefferson’s library; correspondence of T.S. Eliot; an extensive private press and artists’ book collection; the largest depository of archives, manuscripts and printed material concerning the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in North America; and North America’s only collection related solely to peace, disarmament, conscientious objection, non-violence, and women in the peace movement. These irreplaceable items are currently at risk of extensive damage due to the unstable conditions in McCabe Library, and an assessment would be the first step toward ensuring their preservation.

University of Kentucky (Lexington, KY 40506-0001)

Transatlantic Cultural Institutions, 1930-1970

This project is a study of mid-century literary institutions that were involved in the formation of both modernism and postcolonial writing. Several organizations central to modernism, such as the BBC, influential publishers, and university English departments, became important sites in the emergence of postcolonial literature. How did some of modernism's leading figures of the 1930s, such as T.S. Eliot, Louis MacNeice, and Stephen Spender, become admirers of late colonial and early postcolonial literature in the 1950s? Likewise, why did the first generation of postcolonial writers--including Derek Walcott, V.S. Naipaul, Chinua Achebe, and Ngugi wa Thiong'o--actively seek alliances with metropolitan intellectuals? My original archival work on modernist cultural institutions demonstrates that this disparate group of intellectuals had strong professional incentives to see one another more as fellow literary professionals, and less as political or cultural antagonists.

Peter Joseph Kalliney
University of Kentucky (Lexington, KY 40506-0001)

Cultural Institutions of the Transatlantic World, 1930-1970

This project will focus on transatlantic sites of cultural production--especially publishing houses, highbrow periodicals, and literary radio programs--that were integral to modernist literature and later facilitated the emergence of postcolonial writing. This inquiry seeks to explain why some of modernism's leading figures, such as T.S. Eliot, Louis MacNeice, Stephen Spender, and Roy Fuller were enthusiastic readers of literature from former British colonies, much of it stridently anticolonial in outlook.
