BOSTON (AP) – The Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston has received $450,000 in federal funds for its project to preserve the papers of John Adams.

The money comes from a $250,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a $200,000 matching offer.

It will be used to help prepare three volumes of John Adams’ papers, two volumes of the Adams Family Correspondence and conversion of some of those papers to digital format.

The Massachusetts Historical Society has one of the most significant collections of Adams family papers in the world.

The NEH grant was part of $21.4 million in awards to 154 humanities projects nationwide.
