The digitization of 775 hours of recordings from the WNYC Radio Collection that capture civic, cultural, and political life in the New York City area from 1936 to 1970.

WNYC Radio requests a two-year $350,000 grant to work with a 5-member Advisory Board to identify, digitize, preserve, and make available to the public 775 hours of audio recordings from the station's Archival Collection. This material, which documents the civic, cultural, political, and historical events that shaped New York City and the nation, is a trove of rich information about an array of humanities disciplines, including (but not limited to) history, American studies, geography, African-American studies, urban studies, social sciences, and media and culture studies. By preserving these unique recordings for future generations, creating free public access to the recordings, working with an experienced team of humanities-based advisors, and publicizing the availability of these humanities resources, WNYC will support humanities research, teaching, learning, and outreach in research institutions, community-based organizations, schools, and informal learning environments.
