Hagley Museum and Library (Wilmington, DE 19807-2106)
Roger Horowitz (Project Director: August 2018 to present)

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Hagley Library

12 months of stipend support (2-3 fellowships) per year for two years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society at the Hagley Museum and Library is requesting funding from the NEH for postdoctoral fellowships to continue our program of awarding the “NEH-Hagley Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society.” We would award fellowships ranging from four to twelve months in length, with the number of fellowships determined by the durations assigned. Our targeted applicant pool is the large and expanding array of scholars who use records generated by business to explore the impact of firms on our nation, and indeed the world. We see these fellowships as attractive both to recent PhD recipients revising dissertations for publication and mid-career faculty seeking support for sabbatical leave. With the Hagley Library’s own deep research collections on business, and the Center’s extensive scholarly networks, we are confident that these postdoctoral fellowships will attract a strong applicant pool.

Hagley Museum and Library (Wilmington, DE 19807-2106)
Roger Horowitz (Project Director: August 2015 to present)

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Hagley Museum and Library

12 months of stipend support (1-3 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

We propose creating postdoctoral fellowships that we would call the “Hagley Postdoctoral Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society.” Our targeted applicant pool is the large and expanding array of scholars who use records generated by business to explore the impact of firms on our nation, and indeed the world. Similar postdoctoral fellowships for scholars trained in the humanities do not exist anywhere in the United States. We are in constant contact with these scholars through our current extensive grant programs and our role as the administrative center for the Business History Conference, the principal academic organization for scholarly research pertaining to firms and their influence on our society.

Rehousing the J. Victor Dallin Aerial Survey Collection

The purchase of archival shelving and the rehousing of the glass plate negatives, oversize prints and lantern slides of the J. Victor Dallin Aerial Survey Collection. Originally trained in aerial photography during World War I, Dallin started his own aerial survey company, which photographed the towns, cities, factories, private estates, golf courses, and special events in the Philadelphia metropolitan area from 1924 to 1941. Subjects included Delaware River waterfront industries such as Campbell Soup, Pusey and Jones Shipbuilding, Ford Motor Company, as well as events such as the 1929 baseball World Series at Shibe Park (known later as Connie Mack Stadium) and the burning of the Hindenburg in New Jersey. Besides compiling the first aerial survey map of Philadelphia, Dallin's work charts in detail the growth of the surrounding suburbs and the spatial relationships among different industries, including manufacturing, refineries and food processing, and transport and distribution systems.

The J. Victor Dallin Aerial Survey Collection arrived in the Pictorial Collections Department at the Hagley Museum and Library in 1970. The collection of more than ten thousand Philadelphia-area aerial images, taken between 1924 and 1941, has become one of Pictorial's most used collections. It documents an important period of urban and suburban growth in the Delaware Valley region. Local and urban historians, genealogists, urban planners, landscape historians, and others make use of the 8,047 unique photographic prints in the collection and the nearly 7,000 scans that are freely available through Hagley's online Digital Archives. The proposed project addresses the collection's 11,785 glass plate negatives, whose images are at risk due to inadequate storage in acidic boxes and rusted flat files. The project shall: a) box the glass plate negatives, b) box the oversize prints and lantern slides, c) rebox the 8x10 prints, and d) replace the treated-wood shelving with steel shelves.
