  Self-Assessment Forms
Thursday, February 12, 2015

Since the early 1990’s the Haynes Foundation has awarded over 300 Faculty Fellowship Fellowships and over 70 Doctoral Dissertation Fellowships. In order to reach out to past awardees (and all future awardees) for their views on their work, we have developed a one-page, on-line "Self-Assessment Form (SAF)." As an initial effort, we are contacting Faculty Fellowship awardees from 1999 - 2014 and Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship awardees from 2006 – 2010 to ask for feedback using the SAF. In addition, we will use this form to communicate with all future awardees 18 months after their final report date.

  Notice of Final Report
Thursday, February 12, 2015

Beginning January 1, 2015 the guidelines for all of our grant and fellowships will include a new reporting requirement, specifically, a brief, one-page form titled "Notice of Final Report" (NFR). The submission of a Final Report to the Foundation will generate an email directing the Principal Investigator to a unique on-line NFR form. The completed form will give us the ability to quickly add information about the PI and the PI’s project to the Foundation’s web-based Archive.

  2009 Haynes Foundation Lecture in California Studies at the Huntington Library
Thursday, May 14, 2009

The Huntington Library hosted the 2009 Haynes Foundation Lecture in California Studies, which was presented on March 30, 2009 at 7:30 pm at the Friend’s Hall at the Huntington by Professor Bill Deverell who examined the facts and implications of the remarkable level of national media attention devoted to the unsuccessful effort mounted to rescue a little girl, Kathy Fiscus, from a well in San Marino in 1949.  Dr. Deverell has examined the “micro-history” behind the event, including interviews with many of the participants. 

 

Dr. Deverell was introduced by Dr. Peter C. Mancall, a USC professor and Director of the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute.  Both Drs. Deverell and Mancall made favorable mention of the Haynes Foundation.  The event was arranged by Dr. Robert C. Richie, the Director of Research, and Dr. David Zeiberg, the Director of the Library.  Attendance was free and there were over 250 attendees.  The presentation was very well received with many follow-up questions and comments after the presentation.

  Los Angeles: Structure of a City Government - now available online!
Monday, September 24, 2007

Everything about L.A. city government--from who fixes potholes to how people run for City Council--can be found in the new edition of Los Angeles: Structure of a City Government, published by the League of Women Voters at www.lwvlosangeles.org/files/Structure_of_a_City.pdf Written by Dr. Raphael J. Sonenshein of California State University, Fullerton, and recently appointed Executive Director of the Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Review Commission, the publication is an entirely new and expanded version of a book first published by the League in 1964 and most recently updated in 1986. The John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation funded the book. Dr. Sonenshein's edition adds a new chapter to the long and valued history of the League's published guides to the government of Los Angeles. With his invaluable experience as Executive Director of the City of Los Angeles Appointed Charter Reform Commission, his book aptly serves as an introduction to this new governing document for the 21st century. Los Angeles: Structure of a City Government includes sections on departments, commissions and agencies that did not exist prior to the passage of the 2000 charter. Other features of the 208-page book include a newly revised city organizational chart, a recommended reading list, website resources, and an index. Weaving the history of Los Angeles' civic infrastructure throughout, it serves as an invaluable educational resource for people of all ages.
