Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not Now

[Library Benefactor George Olincy]

Description:

George Olincy, benefactor to the Marshall Public Library building project. He was chairman of the Andrew Norman Foundation and offered a challenge grant toward a new library building to Audrey Kariel, Project Director. He suggested that the challenge be given to the Friends of a Public Library rather than the city of Marshall. The Friends were able to match the challenge. The cooperation of the city, the library trustees, and the Friends ensured a successful building project that has been a source of civic pride.
