The Leon Levy Archives Center is a virtual collection, a gateway providing access to important records, manuscripts, letters, scrapbooks, photographs and other materials contained in the archives of institutions that have received Leon Levy Archives Grants. Designed to promote advanced scholarship and expand knowledge, the Leon Levy Archives Grant program has, since its founding in 2007, awarded more than $10 million to 22 institutions.
The Leon Levy Archives Center links to the grant recipients that currently make the contents of their archives or their catalogues available online. Through this center, scholars, writers, students and the public can easily access many cultural and humanities archives in one place.
We invite you to peruse the fascinating holdings of the program’s grant recipients, including the Archives of American Art; Center for Jewish History, The Center for History of Collecting/Frick Art Reference Library; Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum; Jewish Museum; The Morgan Library and Museum; Museum of Modern Art; New York Philharmonic; New York Public Library; Poets House; the Brooklyn Historical Society; the Roundabout Theatre; the National Park Service Manhattan Sites Historical Archives and the Wildlife Conservation Society. More will be added as they become available.
