We need your feedback!

Yesterday was a big day for us. We finished our submission for the Knight Foundation News Challenge grant. And let me tell you, it was tough. In true digital fashion, the submission process was entirely online with some serious limitations! We had 750 characters to summarize our project and three sentences to talk about what progress we’ve made. Thankfully I am working with an amazing group of people.

This challenge has some amazing projects – which means we have some really tough competition. So please take a moment to look at our proposal and give us some feedback. What can we do to make this project better? Are we missing something? The more feedback we get, the better chance we have of being awarded this grant.

    I have over a hundred photographs from my grandfather’s collection of the 2nd Connecticut National Guard in the Mexican Border Campaign, recruiting in Bridgeport in 1916-1917, and WW1 up to the general order restricting private photography prior to the battle of Chateau Thierry. I have neither the skill or the time to scan them all even if I did. I am willing to ship them to the Library en masse if it will be useful. I would like that they remain credited as a private collection at this time. It is my fervent intent to eventually donate the collection to the Library.
