The Century America Project is made possible by:







We would like to thank both COPLAC and The Teagle Foundation for their generous sponsorship of this project. Without these organizations, Century America could not have happened, and we would not have had such a wonderful opportunity to make a contribution to history.

Dr. Jeffrey McClurken of the University of Mary Washington and Dr. Ellen Holmes Pearson of the University of North Carolina Asheville, without whose leadership we would have been uncomfortable and paralyzed.

The following colleges and universities: the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, University of Montevallo, Eastern Connecticut State University, Southern Utah University, University of Wisconsin-Superior, University of Mary Washington, Shepherd University, Truman State University, and University of Maine at Farmington.

A host of local archives, historical societies, university librarians and archivists, and other resources, credited on each individual school’s Century America site.
