Two fellowships to conduct archival research

The John W. Hartman Center For Sales, Advertising & Marketing History at Duke University's David M. Rubenstein Library "acquires and preserves printed material collections of textual and multimedia resources and makes them available to researchers around the world. Through these collections and related programming, the Center promotes understanding of the social, cultural, and historical impact of advertising, marketing, and sales." The Libraries at Duke have significant resources available online such as the database J. Walter Thompson: Advertising American and they also have travel grants to allow researchers to visit their collections. The deadline to submit proposals for the 2019 Travel & Fellowships at the Hartman Center is January 31st.

Its extraordinary collections tell the story of America through millions of rare and unique documents, artifacts, and irreplaceable national treasures." The MHS offers four fellowships for short and long-term research in their collections. Here you will find more information about how to apply.
