This collection consists of copies of records relating to research conducted by the Nebraska Quilt Project, comprised of members of the Lincoln Quilters Guild, between 1987 and 1989.  The project documented the history of quilts and quilt-making in Nebraska.  Participants completed questionnaires with information about the quilt owner, quilt maker and history of the quilt, and photographs were taken of each quilt.  Included in the collection are questionnaire forms and slides for each quilt, as well as transcripts of taped interviews with participants.  Boxes 10 and 11 are restricted due to confidential ownership information.

Note:  The original Nebraska Quilt Project records are held by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, Archives & Special Collections.  Information from these records has been digitized and made available through The Quilt Index.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
