Independence Seaport Museum's maritime library receives $50,000 grant

The Albert M. Greenfield Foundation has awarded Independence Seaport Museum's maritime library a $50,000 grant for a one-year project to organize and catalogue two recently acquired primary source document collections - the records of Seamen's Church Institute, of Philadelphia, a "home away from home" for seafarers since the 1840s, and the records of John E. Hand & Sons Co., a major supplier to the U.S. Navy during World War II and a local manufacturer of nautical instruments dating back to 1873. Finding aids will then be created to enable researchers to locate the specific materials they need.
