The Center for History and New Media at George Mason University announced this evening that the fundraising drive to rename the CHNM after its late founder, Roy Rosenzweig, has reached $950,000, only $50,000 short of the $1 million goal.
Jack Censer, Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at George Mason University, and Gary Kornblith, professor of history at Oberlin College, made the announcement at a reception to celebrate the posthumous release of Dr. Rosenzweig’s Clio Wired: The Future of the Past in the Digital Age at the AHA in Boston.
The Center for History and New Media “represented [Roy's] vision in all of its generosity and his effort to make history freely, openly, and radically available to the demos,” said Dr. Kornblith.
