Center Receives Endowment for The Oral History of Physics

The Avenir Foundation, which has provided several smaller grants to the Center over the years, has generously provided $800,000 for an endowment to support oral history interviewing. Annual proceeds from the Avenir Endowment for The Oral History of Physics will cover the costs associated with preparing, recording, transcribing, indexing and archiving interviews with living physicists, astronomers, geophysicists, and allied scientists. The Center has been able to immediately implement the program since the Foundation generously provided startup funds to cover the costs until the endowment interest becomes available.
