Excellence, Innovation, Scholarship.

The Lapidus Initiative for Excellence and Innovation in Early American Scholarship, generously funded with a major gift from Sid and Ruth Lapidus, incorporates innovative programming and outreach. The Lapidus Initiative builds on the Omohundro Institute’s tradition of excellence in scholarly programming and publishing via our digital and social media platforms to engage scholarly and other audiences.The Lapidus Initiative has allowed us expand the OIEAHC’s innovative capacity in the following ways:

  • by increasing the number of scholarly projects we serve through our intensive editorial process;
  • by creatively employing both existing and developing technology in support of excellence in early American scholarship.
