In order “to promote progress and scholarship in the humanities and the arts in the United
States,” Congress enacted the National Foundation on the Arts and the Humanities Act of 1965.
This act established the National Endowment for the Humanities as an independent grant-
making agency of the federal government to support research, education, and public programs
in the humanities. In fiscal year 2005, grants were made through the Federal/State Partnership,
four divisions (Education Programs, Preservation and Access, Public Programs, and Research
Programs) and the Office of Challenge Grants.
The act that established the National Endowment for the Humanities says, “The term ‘humani-
ties’ includes, but is not limited to, the study of the following: language, both modern and classical;
linguistics; literature; history; jurisprudence; philosophy; archaeology; comparative religion; ethics;
the history, criticism, and theory of the arts; those aspects of social sciences which have human-
istic content and employ humanistic methods; and the study and application of the humanities
to the human environment with particular attention to reflecting our diverse heritage, traditions,
and history and to the relevance of the humanities to the current conditions of national life.”
The National Endowment for the Humanities supports exemplary work to advance and dis-
seminate knowledge in all the disciplines of the humanities. Endowment support is intended
to complement and assist private and local efforts and to serve as a catalyst to increase nonfed-
eral support for projects of high quality. To date, NEH matching grants have helped generate
approximately $1.89 billion in gift funds. Each application to the Endowment is assessed by
knowledgeable persons outside the agency who are asked for their judgments about the quality
and significance of the proposed project. Seven hundred and ninety-three scholars, profes-
sionals in the humanities, and other experts served on 175 panels throughout the year.

angles of a situation to be as accurate as possible.
Admitting his personal bias toward the subject,
Kagan called on historians to resist the modern and post-
modern influences of politics and prejudice. “History, it
seems to me, is the most useful key we have to open the
mysteries of the human predicament,” said Kagan. “Is it
too much to hope that one day we may see Clio ascend

It was during his undergraduate years at Brooklyn

master’s degree from Brown University and his doctor-

at Pennsylvania State University and Cornell University
before moving to Yale University in 1969. For the last

On April 21, 2003, Marine Colonel Matthew Bogdanos led a special recovery team into Baghdad
to reclaim stolen antiquities from the Iraq National Museum. Forty items were stolen from
the public gallery, 3,150 from storage rooms, and ten thousand from the secure vaults in the
basement. “It was as if Stonehenge and the National Mall had all been destroyed in a single
swoop, ten thousand years of civilization wiped out in a single moment,” says Bogdanos.
Bogdanos and his team secured the museum and started their investigation in an active war
zone. Out of the thirteen thousand items stolen, Bogdanos and his team have recovered about six
thousand artifacts by offering amnesty for their return and conducting raids on informers’ tips.
Bogdanos describes his time in Iraq and the black market for antiquities in his book,
Thieves of Baghdad. “If there had ever been a literal ‘cradle’ where civilization was born, you
could not get closer to it than the female face in limestone known as the Mask of Warka, and
the Sacred Vase from the same ancient city. If someone had walked off with these things,
we had to get them back,” writes Bogdanos. When not on active duty, Bogdanos serves as
the senior homicide trial counsel in the New York County District Attorney’s Office.

For the last forty-eight years, Eva Brann has used great books to teach her students at St.
John’s College. Brann, a professor, or tutor as they are called, participates in St. John’s
singular curriculum—the college uses the classic works of literature, philosophy, mathemat-
ics, history, and science to teach students in discussion-based sessions. The college does
not group students by major or department, rather it uses seminars to discuss the evolu-
tion of Western thought. “By and large, everything is done in common, which means
that they the students can always talk to each other. And they do,” says Brann.
NAT I O NA L H U M A N I T I E S M E DA L S 5
Brann has been able to continue her individual interests while at St. John’s. She has published
Homeric Moments: Clues to Delight in Reading the Odyssey and the Illiad, The Music of The Republic:
Essays on Socrates’ Conversations and Plato’s Writings, and The World of the Imagination, among others.

Teacher and scholar John Lewis Gaddis has written about the history of the Cold War
for the last forty years. The diplomatic historian began teaching at Ohio University,
and in 1997 moved to Yale University, where he encourages his students to write “sec-
ond and third drafts” of history as governments release more information.
Working with the early documents available on the Cold War, Gaddis wrote The United
States and the Origins of the Cold War, for which he won the Bancroft Prize. As more docu-
ments became accessible, he revised his work and published Strategies of Containment: A
Critical Appraisal of Postwar American National Security Policy in 1982. Building on the work of
his students, Gaddis wrote We Now Know: Rethinking Cold War History. He says, “It was very
much a book that stands on the shoulders of my students who were doing this work.”

As part of a business plan and public service, Lewis Lehrman and Richard Gilder have
collected more than sixty thousand documents of American history. They began collecting
independently in the 1960s—Lehrman, as a Yale University professor, acquired early American
documents, and Gilder accumulated Civil War maps. After beginning a friendship in the late
1960s, they decided to begin collecting together around two criteria. “Any document had to say
something important about American history that others would profit from studying.…Also,
a document needed an investment value, because that often is a very good test of how much
a document will be appreciated by the market,” says Lehrman.
The Gilder Lehman Collection now includes a signed copy of the Thirteenth Amendment
that abolished slavery and General Robert E. Lee’s farewell address. Many historical documents,
says Gilder, “allow us to picture American history. They’re handwritten, containing spelling
errors—they’re very personal. When you read them, you really get a sense of the people who
put them together.” Lehrman and Gilder have created two institutes for higher education.
In 1994, they founded the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and in 1998, the
Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery was established.

During her freshman year at Mount Holyoke College, Eleanor Roosevelt inspired a young
Mary Ann Glendon. Roosevelt planted a seed that culminated in Glendon’s most recent book,
A World Made New: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. “I have come
to see the story of Mrs. Roosevelt and her colleagues as one that gives encouragement to those
of us who want to believe…that human affairs need not forever be governed by force and
accident,” says Glendon. “They can be affected to some extent by reflection and choice.”
Glendon transferred to the University of Chicago, where she received her undergraduate
degree and a law degree; she practiced in Chicago from 1963 to 1968. Glendon began teaching at
Boston College Law School and moved to Harvard Law School in 1987. In addition to her book
on Roosevelt, she has also published The New Family and the New Property, The Transformation of
Family Law, Rights Talk: The Impoverishment of Political Discourse, and A Nation Under Lawyers.

An interest in antiques began very early for Leigh and Leslie Keno. The twin brothers started
collecting wrought iron door handles they found in local barns and houses in upstate New York.
“Once we found an object, we wanted to learn as much as we could about it,” says Leslie Keno.
Now, the brothers are experts in American antiques and appear regularly on PBS’s Antiques
Roadshow and their own series, Finds. “The best part of the show is hearing what the owners have to
say about the pieces,” says Leigh Keno. “We make a point of letting the person talk and tell their story.”
Leigh Keno, who was once vice president in the appraisal department at Christie’s, owns Leigh

“The Enlightenment was a phenomenon that worked for greater tolerance,” says history profes-
sor Alan Charles Kors. “It was an age that encouraged the freest possible intellectual life.” As an
Enlightenment scholar, Kors has dedicated his career to increasing knowledge and tolerance.
Since 1968, Kors has taught at the University of Pennsylvania and now occupies the
George H. Walker Endowed Term Chair. In 2002, he published the Oxford Encyclopedia
of the Enlightenment, for which he served as editor-in-chief, and received the Lindback
Foundation Award and the Ira Abrams Memorial Award for distinguished teaching.
Besides his scholarly work, Kors is an active proponent of academic freedom. “If
you find yourself in higher education and at universities at moments of unfairness and
abuse of power, then you have a moral responsibility both to higher education and to
your students and to a free society to do something about the state of rights and liber-
ties,” says Kors. In reaction, he has published The Shadow University: The Betrayal of
Liberty on America’s Campuses with civil liberties attorney, Harvey Silvergate. In 1998,
Kors and Silvergate started FIRE: Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

When etiquette columnist Judith Martin was a young girl vacationing in Egypt, she was
drawn to an ancient letter from a father to his son, detailing what he should and should
not do. Her father, a United Nations economist, told her, “If you want to understand a society…
look at their rules. What they are being told not to do, that’s what they are doing, because
otherwise you wouldn’t have to tell them not to do it.”
For nearly thirty years, as “Miss Manners,” Martin has written on etiquette, offering advice
on everything from befuddling forks to greedy brides and grooms. Her twice-weekly column
originated in the Washington Post and is now syndicated. She has penned ten books, including
Star-Spangled Manners, a historical study of etiquette in American democracy, and two novels.
Martin says, “I define etiquette books very loosely. I read novels with man-
ners and philosophical and religious tracts.” She graduated from Wellesley College
and joined the Washington Post as a copy editor. She would answer calls on etiquette,
and since 1978, Martin has presided over America’s manners from her column.

Six hours before he died, George Washington said to his secretary Tobias Lear, “I find
I am going, my breath cannot last long.…Do you arrange and record all of my late
military letters and papers. Arrange my accounts and settle my books…and let Mr. Rawlins
finish recording my other letters which he has begun.”
Washington’s obsession with his correspondence and books began early on in his public
career. During the Revolution, he hired a staff to record his letters in legible handwriting and
continued the practice throughout his life. “He had a sense that the Revolution was an extraordi-
narily important event in the history of this nation and that he was going to play a very important
role in this,” says Theodore Crackel, editor-in-chief of the The Papers of George Washington.
In 1969, the University of Virginia and the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association
began compiling and publishing Washington’s documents from around the world. So
far, they have published fifty-four volumes of the projected ninety-volume series.

Author, scholar, and former college president Josiah Bunting III delivered the third
annual Heroes of History Lecture on October 18, 2005, at the Old Post Office Pavilion
in Washington. Bunting spoke on “George Marshall: An American for All Seasons.”
Bunting became president of the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation in 2004 after serv-
ing for eight years as superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in Lexington,
Virginia. He serves concurrently as chairman of the National Civic Literacy Board of the
Intercollegiate Studies Institute. He is a 1963 graduate of VMI and later studied at the
University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar and at Columbia University, where he was a John
Burgess Fellow. From 1966 until 1972 he served on active duty in the U.S. Army, attain-
ing the rank of major. He served in Vietnam and as an assistant professor of history at
West Point. Later he served as professor of history at the Naval War College and as presi-
dent of Briarcliff College (1973-1977) and Hampden Sydney College (1977-1987).
His publications include four novels and a new biography to be published by Knopf in
2006 on the life of George C. Marshall. Mr. Bunting’s first novel, The Lionheads, was selected as
one of the Ten Best Novels of 1973 by Time magazine; his utopian fantasy about an ideal col-
lege, An Education for Our Time, was a main selection of the Conservative Book Club in 1998.
Part of the We the People initiative, the Heroes of History Lecture offers
the public an opportunity to learn about the lives and deeds of our nation’s
heroes. The lecture is held annually and carries a $10,000 honorarium.

Through the Division of Education Programs, NEH provides national support for fac-
ulty development and teaching resources in the humanities. These resources are developed
with rigorous scholarship to meet the needs of America’s classrooms. The division’s pro-
grams address needs at all grade levels, from elementary through graduate school, and help
instructors bring humanities scholarship into their teaching. In 2005, 110 awards went to
102 institutions in twenty-nine states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
The Teaching and Learning Resources program continued to flourish in 2005. This program
focuses on the development of classroom resources. Curriculum Development Grants help edu-
cators marshal the necessary resources to launch broadly based curricular efforts of national
significance, such as a project at Shimer College in Waukegan, Illinois, to integrate great art works
into a successful Great Books core curriculum. Materials Development Grants support the creation
and wide dissemination of print, video, and electronic instructional materials in the humanities. A
project at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, will create interactive digital learn-
ing tools for students of Italian language and literature. The University of Maryland, College Park,
will use its grants to develop a digital educational archive of American speeches and public debates,
with accompanying historical information and scholarly interpretations for use in the undergradu-
ate curriculum. The University of Texas, Austin, will develop a Web-based structure for bringing
together the digital assets of presidential libraries, organized around a timeline of the administra-
tions of the late twentieth-century presidents and the major events these leaders encountered.
Faculty Humanities Workshops provide opportunities for institutionally and regionally
focused professional development activities for schoolteachers and college and university faculty.
One workshop in 2005, led by faculty members at the University of South Florida, enabled
local social studies and foreign language teachers to engage in a series of workshops examining
the history, literature, and cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean. Gaston College, located
in the North Carolina Piedmont, held a series of workshops for fifteen local college and school
teachers examining the African American experience in the textile mills of rural North Carolina.
The Witherspoon Institute at Princeton University conducted a series of workshops for faculty
and visiting fellows at Seton Hall University, Villanova University, and Princeton University
on the natural law foundations of the Constitution.
In 2005, the Institutional Grants program was replaced by Humanities Initiatives for Faculty.
These grants enabled faculty members at the nation’s historically black, Hispanic-serving, and tribal
colleges and universities to facilitate professional development, to spearhead curricular change,
and to strengthen teaching and research in the humanities at their institutions. An award to Dine
College in Tsalie, Arizona, has enabled seven experienced teacher of the Navajo language to review
features of Navajo linguistics that apply to the teaching of the language, including a series of work-
shops based on the research and publications of Navajo-language specialist Robert Young.
An award to the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras, enabled faculty to study the multiple
representations of the city in twentieth-century Latin American literature.
Seminars and Institutes support professional development for teachers each summer at col-
leges, universities, libraries, and research centers; these summer study programs range from two
to six weeks and take place across the country and at sites abroad. An award to the San Jose
State University Foundation in California, enabled fifteen schoolteachers to conduct a four-week,
interdisciplinary study of key cultural concepts and values that have shaped Japanese society,
using historical documents, poems, novels, works of art, and performance. The Maine Humanities
E D U C AT I O N P RO G R A M S 10
Council sponsored a three-week institute for thirty schoolteachers exploring the personal and
professional relationship between Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Led
by faculty from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland in Baltimore, a five-week institute enabled
twenty-five middle and high school Latin teachers to contextualize the study of Latin language
and Roman culture through on-site study of dwellings in and around Rome and in the region of
Pompeii. A six-week seminar sponsored by Western Michigan University enabled fifteen college
and university teachers to study Anglo-Saxon hagiographic writings and related issues at England’s
Cambridge University. Rice University conducted a four-week institute for twenty-five college teach-
ers, conducted in German, drawing on works of literature and studies of migration and ethnicity, in
order to examine both the benefits and the tensions arising from the mix of cultures and nationali-
ties in Vienna in the twentieth century.
As part of the Endowment’s We the People initiative, Landmarks of American History
Workshops provide one-week residence-based workshops for K-12 educators to have direct experi-
ence in the interpretation of significant historical sites and the use of archival and other primary
historical evidence in the study of American history. In 2005, hundreds of schoolteachers studied at
historic sites, including Spanish St. Augustine in the context of American colonial history, loca-
tions along the Illinois and Michigan Canal as they relate to broader themes in American history,
and Abraham Lincoln’s home in Springfield, Illinois, to study politics and society in antebellum
United States. Also in 2005, an additional Landmarks program was inaugurated, this one directed
towards community college faculty. Jackson State University conducted workshops for community
college teachers at sites central to the Freedom Summer and the Sanitation Workers’ Strike, critical
events in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Mars Hill College conducted workshops for com-
munity college faculty to explore the relationships of the Cherokee, settlers, loggers, and scientific
foresters to the natural resources and historic sites of the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area. The
Community College Humanities Association conducted workshops for community college teachers
on the history and importance of the Alamo in Texas.
The EDSITEment Project (edsitement.neh.gov) continued to grow. Forged through a partner-
ship with the MarcoPolo Education Foundation, this nationally recognized gateway for teachers
seeking rich humanities resources on the Internet comprises nearly 150 Web sites selected by peer
review panels for their excellent humanities content, interactive design, and usefulness in the class-
room. EDSITEment also includes extensive learning units for grades K-12. By the end of 2005,
EDSITEment was receiving 450,000 visits and more than one million hits per month.
Finally, as a result of a request for proposals, Boston University is developing the intellec-
tual scaffolding that would lead to a National History Bee for high school students, as part of the
Endowment’s We the People Initiative.

Through the Division of Preservation and Access, NEH combats the physical deterioration
of humanities collections in America’s libraries, museums, archives, and historical organizations,
ensuring access to these collections for research, education, and public programming. In fiscal
year 2005, 174 grants went to support preservation and access activities in 164 institutions in
forty-two states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
A recent survey revealed that that nearly one-third of cultural institutions in the United States
urgently need additional storage facilities or furniture. NEH stabilization grants help provide proper
storage and security systems to preserve humanities collections in museums, libraries, and archives.
A grant to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, for example, helped pre-
serve its valuable collection of works of art from around the world. NEH has always considered
support for education and training an important component of its national preservation efforts.
NEH currently supports six regional services organizations across the country that provide thou-
sands of cultural repositories with preservation information and training.
The Endowment also supports the creation of a wide array of printed research tools and refer-
ence works, including encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, databases, and other types of reference
materials. Previously printed works, such as The Middle English Dictionary, are now available in a
digital version, enabling users to search the information in multiple ways and to integrate this refer-
ence source with other online resources. In 2005, a grant supported the addition of approximately
240 entries in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, a freely accessible online reference work.
The division also encourages the development of new technical procedures for preserving and
improving access to humanities resources. For example, NEH made a Research and Development
grant to Indiana University at Bloomington to develop best practices for preserving deteriorating
analog sound recordings of music from around the world by converting these recordings into digital
format. The results of this particular project will be of interest to audio repositories worldwide.
About one half of the more than 6,000 currently spoken languages are threatened with extinc-
tion. In an effort to address this crisis, in 2005 the NEH and the National Science Foundation
established a joint, multiyear initiative on Documenting Endangered Languages. Grants will sup-
port fieldwork and other activities relevant to recording, documenting, and archiving endangered
languages, including the preparation of lexicons, grammars, text samples, and databases. One such
award went to the Museum of the Cherokee Indian in Cherokee, North Carolina, which is digitiz-
ing Cherokee language materials in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural
History and working with tribal elders to translate and assess these materials.
Newspapers document the civic, legal, historical, and cultural events in every region of
the nation of the past three hundred years. All fifty states, two U.S. territories, and the District
of Columbia have been involved in the Endowment’s United States Newspaper Program, a
national initiative to catalog and preserve on microfilm the country’s newspapers on a state-by-
state basis. Grants in 2005 went to California, Illinois, and Virginia to preserve historic newspapers
in those states. At the conclusion of the current projects, nearly 214,000 historic newspaper
titles will be available in a national database and more than sixty-eight million deteriorating
newspaper pages will have been transferred onto microfilm.
With the advent of digital technology, there is now a means of providing full-text search-
ing of newspaper content. As part of the We the People program, a major effort is being made
to digitize microfilmed pages of historically significant newspapers, which could be searched
on a national database freely accessible via the Internet. In pursuit of this objective, NEH
P AT I E NA L I N D A N M A C C F O R RO G R U M A
NR E S O RVA T EO N O W D E N T E S S PT H E H A M S N I T I E S 7
and the Library of Congress signed a memorandum of understanding in 2004 establishing a
partnership to create the National Digital Newspaper Program. Under the terms of this part-
nership, over a period of approximately twenty years, the Endowment will provide grants to
institutions and organizations in each state of the nation to digitize titles published between
1836 and 1922 and to prepare fully searchable files that the Library of Congress would per-
manently maintain on the Internet. The National Digital Newspaper Program is a complex,
multiyear undertaking that will be implemented in successive phases. The NEH recently pro-
vided support for projects in California, Florida, Kentucky, New York, Utah, and Virginia that
will result in the digitization of hundreds of thousands of pages of historic newspapers.
Smaller cultural repositories constitute the large majority of collecting institutions in the
United States. Preservation Assistance Grants provide small and mid-sized libraries, archives,
museums, and historical organizations with up to $5,000 to support onsite consultations with
preservation professionals to enable staff to attend preservation training workshops, and to
purchase preservation supplies and equipment. Since FY 2000, 702 grants have been made to
institutions in fifty states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Among the 114 grants
made in 2005 was one to the Gold Nugget Museum in Paradise, California, to purchase stor-
age furniture to house its collections of materials related to the history of northern California.
After the recent hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico, it became clear that workable institu-
tional plans for disaster preparedness and response are of particular importance. Shortly after
the extent of the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina became apparent, the NEH made avail-
able Emergency Grants of up to $30,000 for salvage and recovery efforts on the part of cultural
institutions in the disaster areas. The Division of Preservation and Access has served as the
principal point of contact for museums, libraries, archives, and other organizations seeking emer-
gency assistance. Among the recipients of awards were the New Orleans Notarial Archives,
Jefferson Davis’s home at Beauvoir, and the Old Capitol Museum of Mississippi History.

The Division of Public Programs promotes an exploration of the shared cultural heritage of the
American public through exhibitions and catalogs, radio and television programs, reading and
film discussions groups, symposia, conferences, and interactive multimedia projects. In fiscal year
2005, museum exhibitions supported by the Endowment include the interpretation of the cot-
tage used by Abraham Lincoln as a seasonal retreat from 1862 to 1864; a traveling exhibition,
mounted in railroad cars, about Indiana’s role in the Civil War; and an exhibition examining
the culture and art of a nomadic dynasty ruling much of China from 907 to 1125 c.e. The Fine
Arts Museums of San Francisco received a grant for “Daughter of Re: Hatshepsut, King of
Egypt.” The exhibition, with its catalog and public programs, highlights the art that was cre-
ated during the reign of the female pharaoh Hatshepsut, who held Egypt’s throne for nearly two
decades in the early New Kingdom as co-ruler with her nephew. From monumental sculptures
to intricate gold jewelry, the scope of the artwork reveals the majesty of Hatshepsut’s reign.
Projects funded in 2005 in the nation’s libraries include a long-term exhibition of found-
ing documents about the development of democratic freedoms in Massachusetts and how
they influenced the early Republic; programs on the changing patterns of immigration to
the United States; and a film and discussion series on the history of jazz. The Louisiana
Endowment for the Humanities received a grant for Prime Time Family Reading Time: National
Outreach, a series of reading and discussion programs for adult new readers and their fami-
lies. Held at public libraries, discussions based on award-winning children’s literature are led
by scholars and storytellers. The program teaches parents and children to read together and
discuss humanities topics, and encourages them to continue their own educational paths.
Thirty-nine libraries received grants to participate in “Alexander Hamilton: The Man
Who Made Modern America,” a traveling panel exhibition that examines Hamilton’s central
role in creating the economic, constitutional, social, political, and foreign policy templates for
modern America. Each section examines a different period in Hamilton’s life, and participat-
ing libraries present at least one public program that features a presentation by a scholar.
The Endowment also supported several Special Projects, such as a series of informal courses on
old age in literature and film and an online exhibition about the human struggle for survival under
the Soviet system of coercive labor camps. Frederick Community College received a grant for a Web
site, conference, and lecture series on Crossroads of War: The Civil War and the Home Front in the
Mid-Atlantic Border Region. The project uses a regional approach in examining the Civil War expe-
rience and includes guided tours of sites such as the Gettysburg battleground and Harper’s Ferry.
Several television and radio projects funded in 2005 examine the lives of impor-
tant literary Americans, such as Louisa May Alcott, Eugene O’Neill, and Walt Whitman.
Others explore the history and influence of American jazz in Paris, Spain’s global empire,
and the contributions of exiles from Nazi Germany to the development of American cin-
ema. KCET-TV in Los Angeles received an award for Andrew Jackson and the Shaping of
American History, a television documentary series on the life and times of the seventh presi-
dent of the United States. The series focuses on the crucial issues—slavery, Indian removal,
the nature of democracy—facing the nation between the American Revolution and the
Civil War. The film will be broadcast as a part of the American Experience series on PBS.
P U B L I C P RO G R A M S 27
As part of the Endowment’s ongoing We the People initiative, the Endowment supported
several notable Interpreting America’s Historic Places projects, such as the reinstallation
of the Alaska history galleries of a museum in Anchorage, an interpretation of the stu-
dio of Hudson River School artist Thomas Cole, and a living-history interpretation of a
nineteenth-century general store in Captain Cook, Hawai’i. Awards for Family and Youth
Programs in American History were also made in 2005, including a hands-on history exhi-
bition at a children’s museum interpreting Philadelphia’s 1876 Centennial Exhibition and
a long-term exhibition that explores the diverse cultures of Brooklyn, New York.
The Endowment made forty Consultation Grants for public programs. These $10,000
awards support the development of a wide range of projects, including site tours, exhibitions,
and Web sites. One grant went for public programs on the history of orphans and institu-
tional child care in America. Another supported a long-term and an online exhibition based
on the diary of a six-year-old girl on a whaling voyage in 1868. A television documentary
on the industrial designers Charles and Ray Eames and their impact on visual culture and a
film examining Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, both received Consultation Grants.

Through the Division of Research Programs, NEH assists scholars who are engaged in
examining ideas, making inquiries, and assembling evidence that leads to a better understand-
ing of human thought, societies, and cultures worldwide. Their projects are often journeys into
archival sources to discover and make available previously inaccessible material. In the Scholarly
Editions program, for example, a 2005 grant was awarded to The Massachusetts Historical Society
to digitize, over three years, thirty-five volumes of edited documents, a total of about 17,600 pages,
bearing on two of the leading families of colonial America—the Winthrops and the Adamses. At
the completion of the project, scholars, students, and the general public will be able to use impor-
tant texts heretofore available only in major research libraries. The Society will make the text
available free of charge on its Web site (www.masshist.org).
Within the Collaborative Research Program, the division supports long-term research
ranging from archaeological projects to scholarly conferences, biographies, and linguistic and
literary endeavors. A 2005 grant went to the University of California, Los Angeles, in support of
a project entitled “The First Generation of British Industrialists: Scientific Culture and Civic Life,
1780–1832.” This historical study, a collaboration involving Margaret Jacob and Larry Stewart and
two summer graduate research assistants, regards industrialization as part of a cultural process
with scientific knowledge playing a central role. Their investigation of the first generation of British
industrialists builds on research that has revealed the depth and sophistication of human agency
and which undercuts more mechanistic models of economic growth. A 2005 award to the W. F.
Albright Institute of Archaeological Research is supporting one twelve-month and one six-month
postdoctoral fellowship for each of three consecutive academic years through 2009. These are con-
tinuous, residential fellowships at the institute, located in Jerusalem. The Albright is dedicated to
pursuing research across the entire gamut of ancient Near Eastern Studies, from prehistory through
the early Islamic Period. In 2005 the Endowment supported fellowships at fourteen research institu-
tions in the U.S. and eleven institutions that facilitate international research.
Fellowships, summer stipends, and faculty research awards also provide support for humanities
research. In 2005 a fellowship was awarded to Chitralekha Zutshi of the College of William and Mary
in support of a project entitled “A Social History of the Northern Indian Kashmiri Shawl.” Zutshi argues
that, far from simply being mere textiles, Kashmiri shawls were commodities that embodied cultural
values, not only those of Kashmir but also those of the societies to which the shawls were exported.
In 2005 the Endowment entered into a special partnership with the National Science Foundation
to document endangered languages throughout the world. The central objectives of one such project,
undertaken by Erin Katherine Debenport of the University of Chicago, are to record and archive
audio materials in the Southern Tiwa language as it is spoken at Sandia Pueblo, New Mexico, and
to train tribal members in descriptive linguistic methodology.
An NEH summer stipend was awarded to Patricia E. Grieve of Columbia University for her
project, “True Lies: Tweaking the Saints’ Tales in Don Quixote.” The NEH grant made it pos-
sible for Grieve to complete one long chapter in a book about how Cervantes and Maria de Zayas
creatively manipulated saints’ lives and other kinds of spiritual writings in their own secular stories.
Grieve argues that because of the tremendous power and impact of religious traditions on the daily
lives of seventeenth-century Spaniards, writers were able to create ironic, subversive parodies in
short tales about women and their social roles.

Faculty research awards support faculty at historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-
serving institutions, and tribal colleges. Stanley Harrold of South Carolina State University
received a faculty research award in support of his project, “Border War: The Long War before
the American Civil War.” The focus of the project is the violent confrontation between anti-
slavery and proslavery forces that occurred from the 1820s to the 1860s on the long border
between America’s free-labor and slave-labor states. In its geographic scope and in its investiga-
tion of the proslavery side, Harrold’s study indicates that assisted slave escapes, the kidnapping
of free Northern African Americans into slavery, and armed conflict between antislavery and
proslavery vigilantes in the region pushed the United States toward disunion and war.
During 2005, 111 books resulted from NEH-funded research. Among them were a number
of prize winners. American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Kai
Bird and Martin J. Sherwin won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography. E. Brooks Holifield of Emory
University was awarded the Albert Outler Prize by the American Society of Church History for
his Theology in America: Christian Thought from the Age of the Puritans to the Civil War. Jonathan
Sarna of Brandeis University won the Saul Viener Prize of the American Jewish Historical Society
for his American Judaism: A History. Alice Kaplan of Duke University received the 2005 Henry
Adams Prize, awarded by the Society for History in the Federal Government, for The Interpreter.

The NEH Challenge Grants program contributes to the nation’s long-term investment in the
humanities by providing funds for construction, renovation, and acquisitions, as well as for
endowments that offer continuing support through their earnings. Most importantly, recipients of
challenge grants use the federal funds to leverage nonfederal gifts totaling three or four times the
amount of the federal offer. During the nearly thirty years of the program’s history, NEH challenge
grants have leveraged approximately $1.5 billion in nonfederal support for the humanities. In 2005,
grants totaling more than $12.7 million generated nonfederal donations of over $39.5 million.
The NEH Office of Challenge Grants sponsored two award programs during 2005. Regular
challenge grants supported long-term initiatives in all types of humanities institutions, including state
humanities councils, museums, historic sites and historical societies, libraries, community colleges,
colleges, universities, and centers for advanced research. A special initiative, We the People Challenge
Grants in United States History, Institutions, and Culture, supported long-term enhancements to
programs that investigate and advance knowledge of the founding principles of the United States.
Libraries are the laboratories of the humanities and a sine qua non for humanities research.
The Redwood Library and Athenaeum in Newport, Rhode Island, which was chartered in 1747
and is our nation’s oldest lending library, received a challenge grant to support the restoration,
renovation, and expansion of its historic facility. St. John’s University in Minnesota received a
challenge grant to support an endowment for its Malta Study Center, one of three divisions of
the university’s Hill Monastic Manuscript Library. The center’s holding’s include 16,000 reels of
microfilm, comprising the archives of the Knights of Malta, the records of the Roman inquisi-
tion in Malta. The challenge grant will establish an endowment to make the curator’s position
permanent and provide funds for cataloging, visiting scholars, workshops, symposia, and the
acquisition of materials to supplement the collection. The American Academy in Rome was
established in 1894 and chartered by an Act of Congress in 1905. A challenge award to the
academy will be used to expand its research library, which is currently operating at near capac-
ity. The library, which contains 131,000 volumes and receives approximately 10,000 visits per
annum, serves American researchers investigating topics that range from the Classical era to
the modern world. The award will also provide an endowment for a special lecture program.
Challenge grants reflect the expanded capacities for humanities studies that can result
from innovative uses of new digital technologies. For example, the Southeastern Library
Network, or SOLINET, received a challenge grant to support the Stanford Encyclopedia of
Philosophy, a free, open access, Internet-based resource that benefits academia and the gen-
eral public. This online encyclopedia is designed as an evolving resource for the study of a
core field in the humanities. Alphabetically-arranged articles will be updated on a continuing
basis, and all entries will be archived to allow definitive scholarly documentation. Digital tech-
nologies are also transforming public media, and in 2005 a number of public media stations
used challenge grants to leverage support for their migration to digital broadcasting. Many of
these recipients also used their awards to underwrite local programming. The Commonwealth
Fund for Kentucky Educational Television, for example, will use its challenge grant to cre-
ate an Endowment for Kentucky Productions, providing a stable, permanent base of funding
from which to leverage grants supporting the production of a new series, “Kentucky Stories.”
Many colleges and universities use challenge grants to move the humanities into new
areas of scholarship. Challenge grant funds will allow Hiram College to support permanently
its national summer seminar program in the college’s Center for Literature, Medicine, and
CHALLENGE GRANTS 47
the Health Professions. Bryn Mawr College will use a challenge grant to endow a new gradu-
ate group that will combine the college’s departments of Classical languages, Classical and
Near Eastern archaeology, and art history. Two institutions used challenge grants in 2005 to
endow new approaches to military history: the Virginia Military Institute will endow a campus-
based oral history archive, library and museum acquisitions, conferences, and publications
focusing on the history of the Cold War, while Kansas State University will use a challenge
grant to endow a new Institute for Military History and Twentieth-century Studies, an insti-
tute that will benefit from partnerships with the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library
at Abilene and the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Levenworth.
Like regular challenge grants, the new We the People challenge grants provided awards to
a variety of institutions, including colleges, museums, research libraries, and historical sites.
The focus of this program on the founding principles of our American democracy is reflected
in a grant to the National Constitution Center at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The
award will support the construction of a changing exhibits gallery in the center, exhibits that
illustrate the history of the Constitution and its relevance to issues in contemporary life.
Other We the People challenge grants reflect the broad impact of the Constitution and our
founding principles on contemporary American humanities. St. Mary’s College of Maryland
will use its We the People challenge grant to endow staff and curricular programming in its
Center for the Study of Democracy, which it will run in collaboration with Historic St. Mary’s
City, the site of an early seventeenth-century settlement that became Maryland’s first capi-
tal. The Center for the Study of Democracy will explore early Maryland and Chesapeake
regional history as a basis for understanding democratic values and institutions. The new
Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, located at
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, will use its award to endow costs relating to the museum’s signature
interpretive program, Lessons of Freedom. The grant is designed for students in grades four
through eight to broaden their knowledge of the governing principles and continuing reso-
nance of the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

Federal/State Partnership is the collaborative effort of NEH and fifty-six state and territorial
humanities councils. The goals of the state humanities councils reflect NEH’s mission to promote
knowledge of human history, thought, and culture, and to enhance the role of the humanities
throughout the nation. The partnership is specifically developed to help the Endowment realize
its strategic goals of increasing public awareness of, access to, and participation in the humani-
ties, and to strengthen humanities teaching and learning in schools and colleges across the nation.
The partnership is a significant aspect of NEH’s efforts to make public humanities education and
lifelong learning readily available at the local level, tailored to state and local interests and needs.
Humanities councils operate in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the
U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Amerika
Samoa. Federal/State Partnership makes annual operating support grants to councils to fund
locally developed programs and to design and conduct humanities initiatives. The councils’
effectiveness in serving the public is seen in their collective success in attracting contribu-
tions well in excess of the one-to-one match required by NEH’s legislation. In FY 2005, in
addition to significant in-kind gifts of support, councils received more than $29 million over
their NEH general operating support grants. Of this, $9.85 million came from state legisla-
tures and more than $9.4 million came from foundations, corporations, and individual donors.
Councils also received $3.5 million in other federal funding beyond that provided by NEH.
In FY 2005, councils supported thousands of programs that reached millions of
Americans. Councils are continuing to design and sponsor programs and produce materi-
als that reach new audiences. Council programs reach into rural areas, urban neighborhoods,
and suburban communities. They generate new audiences for the humanities while enriching
the lives of those who already know the humanities. Reports indicate that forty-eight coun-
cils sponsored K-12 teacher projects for 158,182 participants; forty-two councils sponsored
literacy programs that together drew 340,049 participants; 1,168,705 people participated
in reading and discussion programs; 5,598,165 people took part in local history projects;
1,169,748 people attended scholar-led seminars, conferences, and lectures; and 340,794
people attended Chautauqua performances. Council-funded exhibitions attracted approxi-
mately ten million visitors, while council-funded radio and television projects attracted 200
million viewers. Finally, some 534,073 students participated in council-funded projects.
More than three decades of experience in public programming help guide councils as they
implement NEH’s initiative, We the People. Councils are well versed in American democratic
principles, civic history, and community leadership. With their strong networks of cultural
and educational institutions and their tradition of versatility in the use of diverse media, coun-
cils reinforce the Endowment’s emphasis on the importance of the American experience,
both by supporting it with their own resources and by encouraging participation in NEH’s
program and grant offerings. This kind of public programming has, in fact, long been prac-
ticed by councils, who see text-based civic education as an important aspect of their missions.
Some councils held teacher seminars and other programs directly related to the initiative.

As a We the People project, the Georgia Humanities Council, in partnership with Scholastic,
created a history timeline poster, which it sent to all teachers who teach the 8th-grade Georgia
history course. The poster points to content on the online New Georgia Encyclopedia that can
be used by teachers to create lesson plans and guide student learning. By March 2005, there
were already 800,000 hits to the NGE Web site. Thirteen school systems dominated in the list
of top twenty institutional users. Some of the other top users are higher education organizations
and the Georgia Public Library System.
State humanities councils are also noted for bringing the humanities to the public on a large
scale, sometimes embracing populations of entire towns, cities, or regions. The encouragement of
reading is a core function of the state humanities councils and they have been influential in founding and
supporting book festivals around the country that attract large and devoted crowds. The Wisconsin
Humanities Council analyzed the “common defense” clause of the Preamble to the Constitution,
focusing its annual Book Festival on it as well as its statewide reading and discussion programs.
The Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities launched the Mass Moments project on
January 1, 2005, providing a daily almanac of Massachusetts history. Radio listeners and Internet users
find a different story every day about events and people in the recorded history of Massachusetts.
