Announcing the Jeffe Fellowship
October 25, 2016
Article from the Fall 2016 Newsletter
Due to special grant funding from the Robert A. & Elizabeth R. Jeffe Foundation, the New York Preservation Archive Project has created a new year-long fellowship position that will focus on implementing standards of organization and accessibility for the Archive Project’s archival and oral history collections.
Among other important work, the Jeffe Fellow will deal primarily with a backlog in the processing of oral history records, which necessitates tasks ranging from securing missing release forms to audit-editing interview transcripts for accurancy and consistency. The ultimate goal will be to complete the final steps in preparing up to 30 oral histories for publication on the organization’s website, where they will join the larger collection that currently resides there.
We are immensely grateful for the support of the Jeffes and all that they do to make the Archive Project’s important work possible.
