From The Island Now:
Long Island University’s project digitizing Robert Moses archives got a $695,000 grant, according to the university.
The Robert Moses Archival Project is digitizing a collection of photographs, letters and architectural drawings and is a partnership between the university and the New York State Archives and the New York State Department of Parks.
“From Huntington to the Hamptons, from Fire Island to Gardiners Island, the history of Long Island is rich and varied,” said Kimberly R. Cline, president of Long Island University. “By working to preserve Robert Moses’s archival heritage, we’re bringing another part of that history to life.”
Moses shaped Long Island through engineering parks and highways, beginning in the 1920s. Early in his career, as Long Island State Park Commissioner, he created Jones Beach State Park.
The university’s Palmer School of Library & Information Science is taking on both projects.
