U.S. Senators Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-West Virginia), members of the Senate Appropriations Committee, have announced $162,155 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for West Virginia University (WVU). The funding is available through the National Digital Newspaper Program and will support preserving and digitizing historic news publications at WVU.

“The National Endowment for the Humanities continues to be a strong partner for higher education institutions in West Virginia through their support for educational opportunities and historic projects across the Mountain State. I am pleased NEH is investing in this program at WVU to preserve and digitize newspapers, and I look forward to seeing the results of this project,” said Senator Manchin.

“It’s important that we preserve our history, and that includes establishing a digital database of historical newspapers, which are often relied on as a resource for studying many topics,” Senator Capito said. “I appreciate the National Endowment for the Humanities and their continued support for historic preservation efforts like this one happening at WVU.”
