Congratulations to…well, to the North Carolina Collection, but in particular to Elizabeth Hull and the rest of the photographic archives staff working on the Hugh Morton Collection. They recently received a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council for “Worth 1,000 Words: Essays on the Photographs of Hugh Morton.” The grant will allow the NC Collection to commission a series of multidisciplinary essays based on the Hugh Morton Collection of Photographs and Films. The essays will be presented at two public forums, integrated online as part of the blog “A View to Hugh,” and linked to the Morton digital library and archival finding aid.

I can’t wait!
