Gillette Receives Grant from Presidential Library

Aaron Gillette, associate professor of social sciences, has been named one of six recipients to receive the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Association Travel Grant.

The Travel Grant program, funded entirely through contributions from private individuals, corporations, and foundations, is specifically intended to promote the use of collections of the Herbert Hoover Library.

The name of Gillette's research is "Innocents Abroad? Charles C. Tansill, Nazi Propaganda, and US-German Academic Exchanges, 1933-1941."

The Association has funded a travel grant program for over thirty years, awarding over $500,000 in grants. In recent years, awards have ranged from $500 to $2,000 per applicant.

The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Association is a nonprofit support group for the Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch.
