RT Unpublished Material DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 123401963 LA English A1 Pew Charitable Trusts., Office of the Executive Director., YR 1988 AB Subseries B. Sub-Subseries i. contains Rebecca W. Rimel's general correspondence as executive director (1988-1993) of The Pew Charitable Trusts. (Her records as president and CEO form Subseries C., Series V of Accession 2020: The Records of The Pew Charitable Trusts.) It is arranged alphabetically by correspondent for each year. (Note: Because of this arrangement, correspondence from 1988 includes some letters written while Rimel was vice president responsible for health sciences funding.) A portion of this Sub-Subseries includes grant acknowledgments and check requests. The majority, however, contains correspondence with a variety of individuals and grant-seeking institutions, other charitable foundations, local and national political figures and personal and professional acquaintances. Topics include requests for funds; the progress of current grants and Trust-initiated programs; media coverage of the trusts; grants, programs and staffing changes at other foundations; invitations to events; Rimel's service on external boards of trustees; her continuing interest in research on head injury; and the effect of national and local political decisions on foundations. Some of Rimel's correspondence reflect her efforts to guide the trusts through the organizational changes of the late 1980s, including letters from longtime grantees concerned that the reorganization might fundamentally alter the trusts' traditional grantmaking focus. Subseries B. Sub-Subseries ii. contains administrative records held by Rimel: including program plans, project files and external board membership. (Note: This Sub-Subseries includes some records held by Rimel when she served as program director and president and CEO of The Pew Charitable Trusts.).
