Austin Hoover, Director of the Rio Grande Historical Collections, has received a grant award of $5,000 from the Homeland Foundation of New York.  The funds will be used for equipment for the Durango Microfilming Project of the Rio Grande Historical Collections.  The RGHC has spent the last seven years microfilming the ecclesiastical archives of the Archdiocese of Durango, Mexico.  These archives are a unique source of historical information on the development of significant regions of northern Mexico and the southwestern U.S. from 1603 to 1899.
