The Telegram (MA): Transgender history archive at Holy Cross gets funding to expand

The Telegram (MA): Transgender history archive at Holy Cross gets funding to expand. “After starting the initiative at Holy Cross two years ago with an $80,000 grant from the American Council of Learned Societies, Mr. Rawson and his team of Holy Cross students received good news this week: They have been selected by the ACLS again to receive a digital extension grant for their project, this time for $150,000. The additional funding, which the archive must spend during the fiscal year starting July 1, will not only allow the team to purchase a new computer and a better scanner as well as hire outside companies to help digitize its expanding collection, but also add a project coordinator and bring on six additional student researchers to join the 15 already working under Mr. Rawson.”
