Thanks to Beverly Deepe Keever for her generous support of this project and for her gift of the Beverly Deepe Keever, Journalism Papers to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Archives & Special Collections.

This project was made possible by the tireless work of many archival student assistants, including Anna Stokely, Kim Boyer, Anusana Abdel-Monem, Kourtney Meysenburg, Sam Mellema, Supat Rattanasuksun, Audel Salazar, William Kelly, Ross Schroeder, and Krystal Le. Their patient digitization, detailed research, and eloquent writing make up the majority of the work on this website.

In 2021, Madison White joined the project as the Keever Project Archivist. She oversaw the project and the student workers to reorganize, edit, and polish the existing website.

Many thanks to the staff of the Archives & Special Collections who helped make this project possible, including Mary Ellen Ducey, Traci Robison, Josh Caster, Pete Brink, and many others.
