In 2011, Georgetown University was awarded a Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) to research and catalog the collections of six significant twentieth-century American printmakers. The artists include renowned wood engraver and book illustrator Lynd Ward (1905–1985), the preeminent printmaker John DePol (1913–2004), and four highly talented, but underappreciated, women printmakers of the same period: Louise Miller Boyer (1890–1976), Helen King Boyer (1919–2012), Marguerite Kumm (1902–1992), and Kathleen Spagnolo (b. 1919). More than 5,400 objects were cataloged for the Undiscovered Printmakers: Hidden Treasures in Georgetown University’s Library project, which was successfully completed in 2014.
