Content Description

This collection consists of materials created by the South Dakota Humanities Council from 1972-1986. Those materials include publications, correspondence, directories, brochures, reports, questionnaires, minutes, newsletters and news clippings. The folders are in alphabetical order. The South Dakota Humanities Council (SDHC), founded in 1972 in response to an act of Congress, is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit and the only cultural organization in the state whose sole mission is to deliver humanities programming to the people of South Dakota. As a steward of the state's cultural awareness and heritage, SDHC cultivates statewide interest in South Dakota history, literature and other related humanities subjects, while stimulating an interest in the state's place as part of the universal human experience. This programming vision forms the core mission of SDHC "to support and promote the exchange of ideas to foster a thoughtful and engaged society."
