Jameson Papers Project Matching Fund
AHA Staff, May 1991
In 1984 the J. Franklin Jameson Papers Project began to collect materials for a three-volume documentary history entitled John Franklin Jameson and the Development of Humanistic Scholarship in America.
Jameson (1859-1937) was at the center of historical studies for over half a century as editor of the American Historical Review and as a principal figure behind the creation of the National Archives. The Jameson Papers Project is sponsored by the AHA, the Library of Congress, and the National Archives. Volume one, a collection of Jameson's essays is now with the publisher, the University of Georgia Press.
Principal funding for the project is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. A tax-deductible contribution to the American Historical Association on behalf of the Jameson Papers Project will be matched by NEH. Checks should be made out to the American Historical Association, 400 A St., SE, Washington, DC 20003. Please note on the check that it is designated for the Jameson Papers Project.
