On Monday, October 15, 2012, the staff at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library learned of the passing of a great friend and colleague, Father John Kulas, OSB (1930-2012). Father John (or simply “John” as most of us knew him) demonstrated Benedictine values of simplicity, respect, patience, and care in all he undertook for the Library.
The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) announces the establishment of the Dietrich Reinhart OSB Fellowship in Eastern Christian Manuscript Studies, to be awarded annually for three years beginning with the Academic Year 2013-2014.

The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library in Collegeville, Minnesota, preserves handwritten manuscripts around the world and makes the digital images freely available in an effort to understand and protect the history of humanity.
