Project Partners & Staff

This collaborative project could not have come to fruition without a substantial partnership between the Kansas City Public Library and a number of neighboring organizations. The Project Advisory Board was deeply involved in the initial planning, the solicitation of grant funding, and the digitization itself. The Contributing Partners generously opened portions of their archives to the digitization efforts, allowing individuals to view Missouri and Kansas Civil War documents from anywhere in the world.
