DEBORAH GAGNON, Associate Professor of Psychology, CAROL HENDERSON, Library Director, and KATIE WAUGH, Assistant Professor of Studio Art
Wells College was awarded $7,500 in grant funding from the South Central Regional Library Council's Regional Bibliographic Data Bases (RBDB) Fund. The grant proposal, written by Professors Deborah Gagnon and Katie Waugh, and Library Director Carol Henderson secured funds to be used to digitize the Emily Howland Papers, a special collection of the Wells Archives.  Emily Howland worked to establish women's rights, abolish slavery, and democratize access to education. Her niece Isabel served as the secretary for the National American Woman Suffrage Association and together they collected suffrage and anti-suffrage publications. The digitized collection will be incorporated in New York Heritage and the Digital Public Library of America, thus benefiting students, researchers, and lifelong learners everywhere.
