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.
