Barnard Digital Project

Project Director: Zachary Dabbs

Source of Materials: The Henry Barnard Papers, Fales Library and Special Collections, New York University.

The goal of this digitization project will be to create an online collection of the manuscripts of Henry Barnard held by Fales Library at New York University in order to make them more visible and accessible to researchers. The materials to be scanned are primarily letters dating from 1830 through 1900 written by or sent to Henry Barnard from his friends and colleagues in the movement to reform public education in the United States. Barnard’s diaries and select drafts of articles published in his quarterly The American Journal of Education will be included as well. The documents will be captured at sufficient resolution to be reasonably legible and text would be transcribed to enable searches for particular names and topics. Pending funding similar projects would be carried out at other repositories that hold portions of Henry Barnard’s manuscripts, such as the Watkinson Library at Trinity College.
