Researching Philanthropy Exhibit

Mss 78 Kiwanis Convention, June 1933

The questions that bring individuals to the Philanthropy Archives at IUPUI University Library include a variety of subjects and research needs.  Students, educators, fund raisers, foundation professional, and members of the community all have research needs that the Archives strive to meet.  This exhibit shows actual inquiries from researchers and introduces you to the resources of the Archives.  From "what was Merrimon Cuninggim role in philanthropy?" to "I'm studying youth organizations, what information do you have?" to "I need to know what grants the Ford Foundation gave in 1972," these questions are just a sampling of the answers to be found in the Philanthropy Archives!

Visit the Ruth Lilly Special Collections and Archives, located in the Lower Level of the IUPUI University Library to discover the answers!
