Early issues of Humanities magazine, including the first issue published in 1969 (left) and the issue featuring the NEH-funded blockbuster exhibition “Treasures of Tutankhamun” in 1977.

The NEH Digital Repository offers access to a growing collection that documents the history of the Endowment and its role as the largest federal funder of the humanities in the United States. The collection offers a unique perspective on the evolution of humanities research and public programs, federal government priorities since 1965, and the impact of NEH grantmaking.

Materials available to the public through the Public Reading Room include a wide variety of archival records such as grant program guidelines, photographs from the Jefferson Lecture and other special events, press releases, and NEH publications. We are continually adding items based on their historical significance and interest to the public.
