The Cooper Union is grateful to the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation for its partnership and generous support of the Voices from the Great Hall Digital Access Project. This two-and-a-half-year effort included the digitization, cataloging, and preservation of over 6,100 audio and video recordings, 1,300 images, and 1,300 documents, as well as the creation of this digital platform. Recordings from the collection will be featured in future Great Hall public programs to explore how themes from the past can inform current dialogue. The Gardiner Foundation’s commitment to the historical significance of this collection has made this broad public access possible.
