Image Requests:
NWHM does not keep photo archives and cannot transfer image usage permissions to a third party. Please check the photo credits listed for each photo of interest on the page where they’re found and contact the original source to inquire about permissions. Often times, the images come from public domain providers such as the National Archives and Records Administration or Library of Congress.

Information For Students: 

Please be sure to provide an email address at which we can contact you. Many school email servers will not allow emails from outside domains. Ask a parent/guardian before contacting the Museum.

If you are a student contacting the Museum regarding your National History Day project, please be advised that ALL interview requests or requests for research help must be made in writing at [email protected]. We ask that you DO NOT call the Museum. All requests should be made with at least 5 days of lead time. We cannot provide printed materials, but our researchers can often direct you to digital resources to further aid you. Please also consider contacting our colleagues at the Maryland Women's Heritage Center and Museum, the Women's Museum of California, or the National Women's History Alliance for additional support during peak times.
