Applications for the Juneau-Douglas City Museum’s Juneau History Grant are being accepted through Friday, June 28. The grant, which provides up to $1,000 each year, is designed to assist individuals, organizations or groups in documenting, preserving or improving access to the history of the Juneau area. Projects may consist of performances, public presentations, research papers, videos, photographs, recordings, or other media.
Last year’s history grant recipient was Sharon Pusich Gill, who used the funds to install a narrative sign at the Douglas boat harbor that tells people about Mike Pusich, for whom the harbor is named. Other projects include a guide to the Last Chance Mining Museum, compiled by Mary Lou King, Gary Gillette and Renee Hughes; the Juneau Douglas Little Theatre’s 50th Anniversary Artifacts Preservation Project; the Davis Painting Restoration Project, organized by Chapin Heumann and Holy Trinity Epsicopal church; and the Gold Creek Flume brochure, created by Dave Hass and Harborview students.
Established in 1980 by the Juneau Centennial Committee, the Juneau History Grant is managed by the Juneau-Douglas City Museum. For more information about the Juneau History Grant visit www.juneau.org/parkrec/museum/grant.php or contact Jane Lindsey at 586-3572 Jane_Lindsey@ci.juneau.ak.us
