WW1 America National Traveling Exhibition

Implementation of a traveling exhibition, a website, and public programs examining the history of World War I and its impact on America.

The Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) seeks support from the National Endowment for the Humanities in the amount of $1,000,000 for implementation of the exhibition WW1 America. In partnership with four other leading historical institutions—the Bullock Texas State History Museum, the National Constitution Center, the National World War One Museum, and the Oakland Museum of California—MNHS is producing a major, 5,000-sf exhibition on America during the World War I era, 1914-19. WW1 America will help museum visitors gain a nuanced understanding of the War as a transformational moment in American history. An opening is planned to coincide with the April 2017 centennial of American entry into the War; the exhibition will tour nationally 2017-20. The project includes a website and the development of educational and public programs. The total project budget, estimated at $4,089,000, will come from grants, institutional funds, and rental fees from the tour of seven additional sites.

Minnesota Digital Newspaper Project, Phase Four

The digitization of 100,000 pages of historic Minnesota newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Minnesota Historical Society requests $302,900 to digitize 100,000 pages of Minnesota newspapers from the period 1836-1922, as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities' National Digital Newspaper Project. The project will take two years, from September 2015-August 2017. At the end of the project, the Society will transfer to the Library of Congress all digital files, essays, required metadata and duplicate microfilm, per the specifications of the grant. The Society holds the largest collection of Minnesota newspapers of any repository, represented by over 4000 titles. The collection is especially important because of Minnesota's role as a cultural and economic center in the Upper Midwest and its historical significance in the economic development of the entire Northwest. The Society will adhere faithfully to technical guidelines and standards of the NDNP and the Library of Congress; these will continue to be the framework for the work plan.

Interdisciplinary Planning for Energy-Efficient Cold Storage

An interdisciplinary study of energy-efficient cold storage options for film, magnetic media, and microfilm collections related to the history of Minnesota.

The Minnesota Historical Society requests $40,000 to conduct an interdisciplinary study of energy-efficient cold storage options for select collections in the Society???s headquarters building, the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul, MN. The levels currently recommended by the International Standards Organization (ISO) for film materials???photographs and slides, film, microfilm, video and audiotape ??? range from 36??F to 70??F and 20-50% relative humidity. Presently, the History Center maintains levels at 62??F and 36% relative humidity, which while standard for general collections, are not ideal for all film media. Using a single protocol for all collections also produces excessive energy loads. The planning grant would be used to thoroughly investigate the feasibility of and plan for a cold-storage area envisioned as a separate vault within the larger storage area, both to attain optimum environmental conditions for audio-visual collections and to reduce energy consumption.

Lindbergh and 20th-Century American Culture

A book-length study of Charles A. Lindbergh (1902-74) and American cultural history. Lindbergh's writings, and the way they collectively reveal the self that he meticulously constructed for nearly half of the twentieth century, are the starting points of my investigation. To an extent matched by few others in his time, Lindbergh sought to be the teller of his own tale. From 1927 to the last months of his life, he was constantly writing, eventually publishing six autobiographical works and leaving unpublished more than a thousand pages of memoir. My intent, however, is to go beyond the writings, indeed beyond the man himself, to understand how this fabled life was--and continues to be--narrated in the public arena. Because of his fame and the complexities of his character, Lindbergh becomes a prismatic figure through whom is refracted the interplay between self and celebrity, between a private life and a public reputation, between history and memory.

Walter Mondale Papers Project

Arrangement and description of the personal papers of Walter F. Mondale, along with selected digitization of photographs and the creation of a dedicated Web portal.

The Minnesota Historical Society seeks funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to complete the processing of the Walter Mondale papers and to create an online portal to information about Mondale and his political legacy. The Sociey is the primary repository for the personal papers of Walter Mondale. The collection encompasses Mondale's entire career, from his terms as Minnesota's attorney general through his senatorial career, his years as vice president, his 1984 presidential campaign, and subsequent public service. The MHS collection that documents his career so fully is an archival resource of national and international significance. Unfortunately, demand for access to the collection has so far outpaced the Society's ability to process and describe it. This project will allow MHS to complete the processing of the collection, to offer access to related Mondale materials at MHS, and to launch a federated search into Modale collections held elsewhere.

Our Lives, Our Stories: Minnesota's Greatest Generation

Implementation of a permanent exhibition, a traveling exhibition, publications, a web site, and other public and educational programs exploring the collective experience of the generation that fought World War II and matured in the postwar decades.

The Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) seeks support for the implementation of a major new thematic exhibit, Our Lives, Our Stories: Minnesota's Greatest Generation. The 6,000 square-foot exhibit, which opens August 2008 at the Minnesota History Center, explores the lives and legacies of Minnesotans who grew up during the Depression, came of age during World War II, and created the postwar boom. In our focus on a single birth cohort--men and women born around 1910-29--we are developing a way of understanding our history that is perhaps unique in American museums. The exhibit draws on an ongoing research and documentation effort, which encompasses oral histories, a website, a film competition, publications, outreach efforts, programs and a collecting initiative. MHS seeks funds to fabricate and install the exhibit, produce a range of gallery-based media components, and develop evaluation plans.
