The Scott and Donna Langston Archival Grant

Grants and Contracts Details


This semester-long project will result in 10.25 cubic feet of fully processed records from the Jewish Federation of the Bluegrass, Inc. This community and religious-based organization, whose previous iterations date back to the late 1800s, plays an important role in supporting the educational, charitable, social, and cultural activities of the Jewish community in central Kentucky. The collection includes operational and administrative records, such as board minutes, event materials, newsletters, bulletins, reports, and photographs. The records also include born-digital materials on diskettes, CDs, and other media. Access to this collection will contribute to new scholarship and public understanding about the Jewish community in Lexington and Central Kentucky, an area that is underrepresented in the holdings of many Kentucky cultural heritage institutions.
