The purpose of this project was to have an organized method in which researchers would be able to sort and find data easily within the many primary sources left by Veda Stone. Veda Stone was a remarkable woman who through her work was able to bring aid and different programs to American Indians. The McIntyre Library was fortunate to be given the collection of Veda Stones work and personal notes. Having an organized calendar of Veda Stone’s work gives researchers the opportunity to explore the immense impact that Veda Stone had locally. The Veda Stone calendar was created out of collaborative work conducted by twenty-seven researchers. Each researcher went through one box of the Veda Stone Papers collection and documented what was in each box. Next the individual research was combined into one digital calendar archiving the contexts of the Veda Stone Papers collection. The completed digital calendar will allow researchers to efficiently conduct research through the expansive Veda Stone collection. Furthermore, now that the Veda Stone Papers collection has been digitized more research, papers, presentations, and projects can be done on the immense work that Veda Stone conducted in Eau Claire.
