ThiS year Carnegie Mellon University began work to develop a fully electronic historical archive of the papers of the late Senator H. John Heinz III. The project is named HEllOS, the Heinz Electronic-Library Interactive On-line System, in honor of the late Senator. Carnegie Mellon received over one million dollars from the Heinz Family Foundation, Heinz Company Foundation and Heinz Endowments in support of the HEllOS project. The grant supports the establishment of the H. John Heinz III Archives where the Congressional papers of the late Sena tor are being preserved and digitized to make them electronically accessible to students, faculty, public-policy professionals and researchers.
