Congratulations to our awardees of the 2018 cycle of the Rescuing Texas History program!


In May of 2018, we here at The Portal to Texas History, announced the latest call for submission for our Rescuing Texas History program; a program created to provide new and existing partner institutions with up to $1,000 worth of in-kind materials digitization. We are thrilled for these partners and wanted to provide everyone a sneak peek of some of the things to come in the next year or so.
