Emma Lazarus Pedestal Fund

AJHS is recreating the parlor where Emma Lazarus put pen to paper and wrote the “New Colossus.” We appeal to you to help us raise the funds we need to complete the exhibit and will acknowledge every contributor to our campaign in a meaningful and historic way. Though the French gave the sculpture to the United States, Americans needed to raise the funds to construct a pedestal. Emma Lazarus helped by writing the New Colossus for auction. And Joseph Pulitzer, publisher of New York World, appealed to his readers and created the first crowdsource fundraising campaign and it did the job. Just as Pulitzer published the names of donors—even those who gave 50 cents—we will acknowledge all of you in a “Pulitzer inspired newsprint” at the exhibit.
