Word of Appreciation

A Word of Appreciation

Appreciation for their advocacy in bringing the Visual History Archive to Cornell goes to Robert J. Katz ’69, Cornell trustee emeritus and former board chair of the USC Shoah Foundation; and to Jonathan A. Boyarin, Diann G. and Thomas A. Mann Professor of Modern Jewish Studies and professor of anthropology, and past director of the Cornell Jewish Studies Program.

An article describing the launch of the Cornell Visual History Archive initiative appeared in the Cornell Chronicle in October 2015. “Alumni key to building Shoah archive and bringing access to Cornell” appeared in the March 2016 issue of Ezra Update, Cornell’s newsletter for alumni/ae and parents.

“Cornell library gains permanent access to genocide archive” (Cornell Chronicle, 11 May 2020) affirms the generous support from Betsy and Philip Darivoff and from Steven Chernys ’83 that initially enabled Cornell’s subscription to the Visual History Archive and subsequently made possible the library’s permanent acquisition of access to the archive.
