The SYPF is working with the heirs of Sgt. York to catalog, scan, photograph, digitize and otherwise preserve or archive the artifacts, papers, recordings & all other belongings of York. A computer & archival quality scanner has been loaned for digitization, & a small grant helped get the photos & some paper ephemera scanned. Funding is needed for digitization of recordings of York's voice, preservation of materials, security, climate controlled storage, labor for physical work, supplies & contract work.These materials are currently stored in a non-climate controlled storage facility and are not protected from theft, the elements, pests, etc. They are not available for review by scholars or the education of the public. Family has agreed to publication of speeches to benefit this project, but no funds are available to create publication.
