Society Receives a $500 IBM Grant
Volunteer extraordinaire and former Northfield resident Joanna Cleveland Caswell, a retired IBM employee, has enabled the Society to apply for an IBM Community Grant through her former employer. Due to her regular (and plentiful) volunteer hours she puts in at the Society doing, among other things, collection cataloging and genealogy research, she qualified to apply for the grant that IBM makes available to non-profit organizations. We are very fortunate to have Joanna, and all her hard work which results in this grant opportunity. This is the 4th grant we have received from IBM through Joanna's continued commitment to the Northfield Historical Society and its preservation of the town's history.
We will use the grant money to fund the digitization of The Rambler, Northfield High School's yearbook, which began in 1921. The project has started and we will soon be adding links to the searchable, full-content digital files in the PDF format. We are also creating a Master Personal Name Index for the yearbooks so that you can search for people across all the years that way. Check back later in the year to get access to these valuable historical sources!
As you can see, the Society keeps busy year round! Please check back with us for updates.
