National Endowment for the Humanities celebrates 50 years

A philanthropist with ties to GW was honored with a lifetime achievement award last week week.

The National Endowment for the Humanities celebrated their 50th anniversary in the GW Museum and Textile Museum on Friday, according to a University release. Albert H. Small, a famed collector and philanthropist, received the lifetime humanities achievement award at the event.

Small donated his collection of nearly 1,000 manuscripts, books, newspapers, prints and photographs to GW, and it is currently on display as part of the GW Museum and Textile Museum.

“These items will be on display here forever, for the school to see, for the country to see and for the world to see,” Small said in the release.

The GW Museum and Textile Museum opened in March of this year.

The event was cohosted by the National Trust for the Humanities, Federation of State Humanities Councils and National Humanities Alliance.
