Grant Update from San Jose State University
San Jose State University has completed a two-year grant project, funded by the NHPRC, to catalog and process our backlog of university records and manuscript collections. We have posted 73 new collection inventories on the Online Archives of California. Many of the collections document the diverse history of women in the region, including the women who attended the early Normal School from 1862 to early 20th century. Other collections that tie to women's experience include the Glenna Matthews Oral History Collection and the South Bay Second Wave Feminist Oral History Collection.
SJSU also received a detailed processing grant from the NHPRC, which will result in detailed collection inventories for the John C. Gordon Photographic Collection and the Ted Sahl Photographic Collection. Both document local history from the early 20th century to the present. The Sahl collection includes rich photographic essays of the Farm Workers Strikes in California, Anti-Nuclear Protest at Livermore Lab, and the LGBTQ community in San Jose.
