Peace Resource Center secures NEH grant for collection preservation

(August 20, 2019)

The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College nearly $10,000 to be used for preserving its unique collection of 40,000 materials relating to the atomic bombings during World War II.

The $9,980 Preservation Assistance Grant for Smaller Institutions will allow the College to purchase environmental monitoring equipment to be placed throughout the Peace Resource Center to record such factors as humidity, temperature and ultraviolet light that might present a detrimental impact on the historical books, photographs, documents and other media featured in the collection.
