THE SECRET IS OUT!
The Secrets of Radar Museum is the recipient of $10,000 grant
London, ON — The Secrets of Radar Museum is proud to announce it is the winner of $10,000 in EMC Corporation's 2015 Heritage Trust Project international competition. A total of three winners were selected from seven finalists following a two-week public voting period in August.
The prize recognizes and supports local organizations worldwide that advocate the digitization, preservation, and improved accessibility of significant cultural resources. The award will assist the Museum in the digitization of its WWII and Cold War archival collections and veteran oral histories through project staff funding, equipment, and online collection access.
“For a museum like Secrets of Radar, which is a very small organisation, receiving $10,000 is a really big deal,” says museum curator Maya Hirschman. “It means we can dedicate time and resources to preserving and sharing our collection, rather than simply keeping our doors open. It will mean greater access to our unique collections, not just for researchers, but anyone.”
“This is an incredible opportunity for our museum,” says John Millson, President of the Secrets of Radar Museum Board of Directors. “We are deeply grateful to EMC Corporation for the award and to everyone who voted for our project in the competition.”
Thank you to everyone who voted for us in the EMC Corporation's 2015 Heritage Trust Project competition. This award is a direct result of your efforts. We look forward to getting started on this amazing project, and if all goes well, will have at least part of it available online in the coming year.
