The State Historical Society of Missouri is proud to support the recording of history through the resources of the Richard S. Brownlee Fund. The Society invites individuals, local historical societies, museums, and both governmental and nongovernmental agencies documenting the history of Missouri and its people to apply for grants by June 20, 2008.
The Brownlee Fund honors the dedication to history shown by the former executive director of The State Historical Society of Missouri. Under Brownlee’s twenty-five-year leadership, the Society’s holdings of newspapers, reference materials, and manuscripts tripled in size, and the art collection grew with new acquisitions of paintings from Missouri masters George Caleb Bingham and Thomas Hart Benton, as well as increased holdings of editorial cartoons and a contemporary art collection.
The Society awards multiple grants each year, and residency in the state of Missouri is not required. Brownlee Fund applications should be completed and returned to the Society no later than June 20, 2008. Winners of grants will receive their funds at the Society’s annual meeting in Columbia on November 1.
