The Hill Museum and Manuscript Library Saves Manuscripts from Extremists and Makes Them Available to the Public
Have you ever dreamed of wandering through the Great Library of Alexandria? Well, in today’s installment of the Untold Stories of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack gets to do just that, or something just as close in the modern sense. The Hill Museum and Manuscript Library at St. John’s University was founded in 1965 as a means of protecting ancient manuscripts from a potential nuclear war.
Today, they continue their work by not only saving and preserving the foundations of our modern cultures from extremists who are determined to destroy all evidence of the past, but also by opening up the library to classes and the public so that humans will know where we came from far into the future.
This program is funded in part by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Legacy Grant.
