The Greene & Greene Virtual Archives (GGVA) is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the work of American architects Charles Sumner and Henry Mather Greene, brothers who were active in designing houses of extraordinary beauty and craftsmanship, primarily in southern California, during the early years of the 20th century. Funding for the GGVA was provided by a generous grant from the J. Paul Getty Trust by way of the Getty Grant Program’s Electronic Cataloguing Initiative.

Information on Grant Program

The Getty provides critical support to institutions and individuals throughout the world by funding a diverse range of projects that promote learning and scholarship about the history of the visual arts and the conservation of cultural heritage.

The Los Angeles Electronic Cataloguing Initiative was inaugurated in 1997 as a five-year program designed to assist Los Angeles institutions in making information on their visual arts collections available online. Nonprofit institutions located in Los Angeles County, with visual arts collections, are eligible to apply. Funds are available to initiate new, computerized collection cataloguing projects and to convert or improve existing catalogs. Projects must be developed in an institution-wide context and must be part of a long-term plan for the use and support of computer technology within the institution. All projects, including those that involve collection management systems, must be developed in such a way that basic catalogue information can be made available online to users outside the institution. Projects involving the computer cataloging or digitization of slide libraries or other image archives of works not owned by the applicant institution are not eligible for consideration.
