Holding History Awarded Baldwin Seed Grant

We are delighted to announce that Holding History is the recipient of a 2021 Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Seed Project Grant from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Our project, “Reconnecting Communities and Archives in the Time of COVID-19,” was selected by the grant committee to receive one year of funding.


Holding History Co-Director, Sarah Marty, says "The funding will provide Holding History with support for timely and exciting programming in the year to come and will help fund the development and launch of The Holding History Podcast." Primarily, the grant will fund the development and launch of The Holding History Podcast. You can learn more about the podcast, and listen to a sneak preview, on our website.


Baldwin grants are provided through the Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment and honor the legacy of Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin, who believed in the Wisconsin Idea and the mission “to share the university’s knowledge and resources throughout the world.”

Seed Projects “seek to explore or expand new dimensions of existing translational outreach, community-based, and research and public engagement activities” and are “animated by innovative ideas and are shaped by the priorities, needs, and interests of the communities they serve.”


Holding History aims to put the Wisconsin Idea into action; we are very grateful for the support of the Baldwin Endowment and look forward to sharing more work with you in the year to come.
