The BCC Archives Hall of Fame Collection seeks documents, artifacts and personal stories related to efforts to elect Great Americans.

Great Americans were nominated through a grassroots, democratic process. Citizens rallied support and raised money through letter writing, fundraising events, and bake sales to secure their nominees’ election to the Hall of Fame.
