– Rep. Martin Causer (R-Turtlepoint) today announced a $5,000 grant has been awarded to the Kane Depot Preservation Society by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC).
The funding will be used to digitize and preserve unpublished documents, photos, film, VHS tapes, cassettes and slides documenting Dr. Edward Heber McCleery’s work to save the Kane lobo wolf.
“Dr. McCreery’s dedication to protecting these wolves is an important part of Kane’s history, as well as the Commonwealth’s history,” Causer said. “I’m pleased to see the state supporting our local historical society’s work to help preserve this very important part of our past.”
The grant was awarded through PHMC’s Historical and Archival Records Care (HARC) grant program and is one of more than two dozen announced today for organizations across the state.
The grant awards are based on a competitive review of the applications by a subcommittee of the Pennsylvania State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB). The HARC grants are administered by the Pennsylvania State Archives, a bureau within PHMC. For more information about the agency, visit PHMC.pa.gov
