Lee Bloxom Awarded PNC Foundation Grant

April 29, 2009

MATX student Lee Bloxom has been awarded an $8,000 grant to conduct an oral history of 20th century farm life on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. The announcement comes from The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and the PNC Foundation who made the award jointly.

The grant covers the collection phase of the project. During this phase, Bloxom will be interviewing twenty men and women who grew up or worked on farms in Accomack County before 1960. Besides creating digitally recorded (audio) oral histories, she will also collect and digitally preserve photographs and memorabilia in anticipation of a gallery exhibit and the creation of a digital database.

British Virginia is a VCU-hosted series of scholarly editions of documents touching on the colony. These texts range from the 16th and 17th-century literature of English exploration to the 19th-century writing of loyalists and other Virginians who continued to identify with Great Britain. Editions appear principally in digital form, freely downloadable.
