The Huntington, one of the world’s great cultural, research, and educational centers is a private, nonprofit institution founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington, an exceptional businessman who built a financial empire that included railroad companies, utilities, and real estate holdings in Southern California.
Huntington was also a man of vision – with a special interest in books, art, and gardens. During his lifetime, he amassed the core of one of the finest research libraries in the world, established a splendid art collection, and created an array of botanical gardens with plants from a geographic range spanning the globe. These three distinct facets of The Huntington are linked by a devotion to research, education, and beauty.
Scholars come from around the world every year to conduct advanced humanities research using The Huntington’s collections. Through a rigorous peer-review program, the institution awards approximately 200 fellowships to scholars in the fields of history, literature, art, and the history of science.
Sponsored jointly by the Clark and The Huntington, the Clark-Huntington Joint Bibliographical Fellowship provides support for bibliographical research in early modern British literature and history as well as other areas where the two libraries have common strengths. Tenure of Fellowship will be Two months (one month at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library; one month at The Huntington).
