One Million Dollars Added to the Center's Endowment

$1,000,000 has been pledged to the Center's endowment program by the Richard Lounsbery Foundation. This grant will be a great help as we raise additional matching funds in order to maintain for perpetuity the Center's activities of preserving and making known the history of modern physics and allied sciences. The award is a powerful endorsement not only of the importance of the Center's mission, but also of the high reputation for cost-effective work that the staff has earned both in the physics community and in wider circles. Income from the endowment, enhanced now by the Foundation's grant, will help sustain the Center's activities in making grants to archives to catalog and preserve the papers of scientists, grants to scholars to conduct oral history interviews, and much else. Details of the multi-year Lounsbery award will be forthcoming in the Spring edition of the Newsletter.
