Mudd Library Awarded Grant to Digitize Records of the Cold War

The his­to­rian John Lewis Gad­dis, author of a 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winning biog­ra­phy of George Ken­nan, has stated that the Mudd Library holds “the most sig­nif­i­cant set of papers for the study of mod­ern Amer­i­can his­tory out­side of fed­eral hands.” Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of the National His­tor­i­cal Pub­li­ca­tions and Records Com­mis­sion (NHPRC), a taxpayer-funded orga­ni­za­tion that sup­ports efforts to pro­mote doc­u­men­tary sources, over 400,000 pages of records from six of our most-used col­lec­tions will be dig­i­tized and put online for any­one with an inter­net con­nec­tion to access.
