About this site

Frontier to Heartland was funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional funding came from the Institute for Museum and Library Services. This project and the other ongoing projects of the Newberry Library’s Dr. William M. Scholl Center for American History and Culture are supported by the Dr. Scholl Foundation.
