William Adams, the chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), believes that government support for the public humanities is critical to our national welfare.

In the last five years, the NEH has granted more than $22 million to support humanities programs, research and collections in Pennsylvania. As the agency gears up to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2015-2016, Adams believes the NEH can do more to address major challenges in society.
