Frank and Kathrine Wagner Seineke Endowment in Western Americana

Established by David Graves

This subject endowment was established in honor of David Graves’ cousins to provide enriched support for the library collection in Western Americana. Kathrine Wagner is an accomplished amateur historian, noted for her research and publications on Pierre Menard, George Rogers Clark, and other early American explorers and frontiersmen.

Endowment income will be used to acquire books, journals, reference works, archives, and manuscripts, video recordings, electronic databases, and any other materials that will lend depth, character, and distinction to UCSC Library collections on the historical and continuing impact and importance of the American West.
