servant entrusted with a mission. We are calling on you to take
up the role of steward of Florida history. Please help us by join-
ing the Stewards and also by making an annual contribution in
support of one of our initiatives: to support the maintenance of
our archives, to sponsor research and writing in Florida history,
or to expand public programming.

The Rare Books and Manuscripts Reading Room at the
University of Florida Library is a magnet for historians,
writers, film makers, and teachers interested in Florida's
history. Every semester researchers come from across the
campus, across the state, and across the country to carry
out work in the PK. Yonge Library of Florida History, the
largest collection of Floridiana books, documents and
maps to be found anywhere.

Help create a living legacy by contributing to the Stewards'
initiatives on research. Support a travel stipend program,
such as the Cecilia L. Johnson Competition in Florida
History, which makes funds available at the national
level for scholars who want to work in our Florida
history collections.

Or help us in our efforts to create research assistantships
for young scholars at the University of Florida. Each year,
the Stewards' Endowment Program will support a talented
graduate student from liberal arts and sciences or museum
studies and provide two semesters of training in the care
and handling of rare materials. Help create the scholars
and archivists of tomorrow! Talk to us about supporting
the Endowment for Graduate Assistantships.

Help us put our collections in public view! The Florida
history collections are already active in producing
educational materials online, creating K-12 classroom
materials on Florida history, and promoting talks and
seminars about the state's heritage. As a Steward you can
help us through your support of traveling exhibits, web
sites, and outreach to the community. Your contribution
can go a long way to increasing public awareness and
appreciation for the state's rich past.

A grant from the St.Augustine Foundation at Flagler College made possible
this online index to the 50,000+ colonial records of Spanish East Florida
for the years 1784-1821. Now researchers can quickly and easily search the
records for names, places, words, and phrases.
