An NEH Common Heritage grant enabled the Missouri Humanities Council to accelerate its emerging German Heritage Program with a pilot digitization project. The event was held in Hermann, in the heart of the recently designated German Heritage Corridor, a string of heavily German settlements along the Missouri River. The grant enabled the council to acquire the necessary digital equipment, preservation materials, and cataloguing software—items that would not normally fit into the annual budget—to make events like the pilot part of its regular programming.
