1947: HRCC Committee on Aid to Publication

Although it has existed since the founding of the Humanities Research Council of Canada (HRCC), only after the publication of The Humanities in Canada is the Committee on Aid to Publication able to start providing grants in earnest. Although the committee only has $1,000 to start with, they quickly get to work. In 1948 and 1949, five works are published with the committee’s help. By the end of its first decade of work, the committee will have helped support the publication of 27 scholarly works. This would later become part of the Aid to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP).
