Many people assisted in organizing this exhibition of rare Ucrainica. The Ukrainian Research Institute is especially grateful to the following individuals who along with their library staff either provided advice or assisted in the retrieval of material: Roger E. Stoddard, Mariana Oller, Anne Anninger, and the Reading Room Staff at Houghton Library; Fredric Woodbridge Wilson and Annette Fern at the Harvard Theatre Collection; David Warrington, David Jenkins and Dorothy Africa at the Law School Library; L. Charles Willard at the Andover-Harvard Theological Library; Grazyna Slanda and Anna Koff Arthur of the Slavic Division, Widener Library. A number of Institute faculty, staff, students and visiting scholars are also to be thanked for their intellectual or technical assistance. They include: James Clem, Robert DeLossa, Volodymyr Dibrova, Albert Diverse, Michael Flier, George Grabowicz, Lubomyr Hajda, Mary Rutkowski, Roman Szporluk, and Oleksiy Tolochko. A final thank you goes out to Petro Jacyk who made the overall organization of this exhibition possible.

Of course, the development of the Ukrainian collection at the Harvard University Library could not have taken place without the hundreds, if not thousands, of generous gifts from individual donors and the many endowed book funds established by private individuals. Their immeasurable contribution to Ukrainian studies is much appreciated. They have helped build the largest Ukrainian collection outside Eastern Europe in the largest university library in the world.

Ukrainian Research Institute Endowments

The Ukrainian Research Institute at Harvard is the beneficiary of an extraordinary fundraising campaign within the Ukrainian-American community. Over 300 cities were canvassed, with many of the collected contributions ranging from $1 to $100; together, however, these generous donations were sufficient not only to fund three professorships at Harvard, but the Ukrainian Research Institute, scholarships in other academic departments, and the Ucrainica collections at Harvard University Library.

On the occasion of its twenty-fifth anniversary, the Ukrainian Research Institute would like to thank all of those who have contributed to the Ukrainian Studies program at Harvard. In particular, those patrons who have established endowment funds at the Institute are recognized below. The words of then Harvard President Derek Bok in 1973 still hold true today:

“We are proud to have been selected as the university to carry on the scholarly traditions of Ukraine in this country. We are touched by the broad support that members of the Ukrainian community have given to this undertaking. We take this support as a mandate to do our best to foster learning and scholarship relating to the language, literature and history of Ukraine.”
