Applications for the inaugural Bank of America/David and Rosalee McCullough Research Fellowship at Marietta College, Ohio, are now being accepted for the 2022-2023. The Special Collections at Legacy Library contains rare books, manuscripts, photographs, artwork, and artifacts documenting the history and culture of the Ohio Valley. The collections located at Legacy Library are centered on the era of the New Nation and the early settlement of Ohio and the Northwest Territory but they are also rich in the history of Ohio, the Mid-Ohio Valley, and the Midwest. Special Collections can be searched here:


Marietta College anticipates that fellows will conduct research in the Legacy Library’s Special Collections over a two-to-four week period, present an informal public lecture on their research, meet with students once or twice in class to engage in discussion, and have dinner with the McCullough Fellowship committee early in their residency. In return, the fellow receives a $500 stipend for a 2-week residency or $1,000 stipend for a 4-week residency, free accommodation in a college-owned or on-campus apartment, and access to the on-campus dining facilities.

Bank of America/David and Rosalee McCullough Research Fellowships are made possible by a generous gift from the Bank of America made in honor of Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough and his wife, Rosalee. From 2017 to 2019, McCullough spent time at Marietta College’s Special Collections conducting research for his book, The Pioneers: The Heroic Story of the Settlers Who Brought the American Ideal West.
