Frederick Law Olmsted: Grants (1961 - 2005)

4.5 linear feet

Project operations were funded through a series of grants starting with the initial American Philosophical Society grant to Charles McLaughlin in 1961.  Both the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Historical Publications and Records Commission funded aspects of the project for over 20 years.  This series consists of applications, budgets, correspondence, and reports with numerous granting agencies including small and large foundations such as the National Trust for the Humanities and the Mellon Foundation.  This series is divided into two subseries [fundraising and public relations] and arranged alphabetically by subject and/or document type.
