Originally established as a boarding school in 1864, Laurel Hall College is now a virtual institution that exists only to recognize individuals who have preserved for future generations the history and culture of the United States of America.
We fulfill our mission by granting titles, medals and awards in recognition of substantial contributions to the body of relevant public domain works digitized in the form of a eBook, audio book, or any other digital format which makes a printed work in the public domain more accessible to the general public. We primarily issue these awards in connection with contributions to The American Primer (theamericanprimer.com), a free library housing digitized public-domain works which preserve the history and culture of the United States of America as envisioned by the Founders and described in our founding documents.
Any individual who contributes a completed eBook or audio book of a work in the public domain to the collection of The American Primer will be made a member of the Laurel Hall College faculty. No monetary contribution of any kind is requested or expected.
Laurel Hall College grants the following titles to faculty members depending upon their contributions to the body of public-domain works:
- Senior Fellow
In addition, the College will make special awards to faculty and the general public to reward notable achievements in the area of preserving the history and culture of the United States of America, the greatest nation in the history of human kind.
