Teamer Fund Description

Established in 2014, the Teamer fund (named after Dr. Charles Teamer Sr. - former executive director of the Amistad Research Center and Tulane alum) is used to purchase resources relevant to the research of Amistad patrons. Resources are typically purchased in an electronic format; however, some physical resources are purchased and stored at Howard-Tilton Memorial Library or the Amistad Research Center.
