The George G. and Alva Hudson Smith Foundation has awarded more than $6,000 in grant money to the Texas Heritage Museum at Hill College for the purpose of purchasing a special scanner for the Historical Research Center.

The purchase will be for an Optic Book A300 color scanner. This scanner is a special type used to preserve and protect the binding of books while being scanned. This new technology will allow the Historical Research Center to further preserve military history with archive quality digitization scanning for use by researchers, including students, locally, statewide and nationally.

The Smith Foundation was established in 1992 by the late Ruth Smith Moorman in memory of her parents, George Gilliam Smith and Alva Hudson Smith. The mission of the foundation is to enrich the lives of citizens of Hill County.
