David Whitehouse Research Residency for Scholars

David Whitehouse Research Residency for Scholars

The David Whitehouse Research Residency for Scholars is open to scholars who want to utilize the Museum’s resources, especially the extensive holdings of the Rakow Research Library, to inform their research about any period of glass. The residency is named for the former executive director of The Corning Museum of Glass, David Whitehouse — a highly-regarded scholar who worked to build the resources of the Rakow Library, and was a major supporter of scholars researching glass today. This residency gives scholars the opportunity to delve into topics and further their knowledge or to provide research for a project.

Residencies will be up to three weeks in length. Scholars will be provided with transportation to and from Corning, as well as room and board. Residents will have access to the Rakow Research Library, The Corning Museum of Glass, and the Museum’s staff experts. The residency manager will facilitate meetings with Museum experts and other resources.
