Moravian Archives Bethlehem nearing completion of NEH-funded project to assess Caribbean records

In March 2015 the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, received a $37,982 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to fund a planning project for the conservation and digitization of 120 linear feet of archival records documenting Moravian mission work in the eastern West Indies, with an emphasis on the history of the Caribbean’s enslaved populations. The Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Grant awarded by the NEH will serve to improve accessibility to the Eastern West Indies Collection at the Moravian Archives.
