The Edgar Snow Project is made possible by support from the Edgar Snow Memorial Foundation. Not only did the Foundation commission the exhibit to accompany its 2014 Symposium, they also provided the funding necessary to bring the project to completion. The University of Missouri-Kansas City's Miller-Nichols' Library, University Archives, Department of History, and the Center for Midwestern Studies also aided the project throughout its development. In addition to these institutional sponsors, the curatorial team would like to specifically thank Robert Gamer and David Butrous for their research assistance, as well as Louis and Sian Snow for providing access to Snow's personal papers.
