AT&T Helps Library of Congress preserve History.

In what is recognized as the largest corporate donation to the Library of Congress National Digital Library (NDL) program, AT&T has pledged a donation of $3.5 million to help the Library accomplish its goal of digitizing historic materials. Part of this grant will go towards preserving items from the Alexander Graham Bell Family Collection and the Samuel F. B. Morse Collection, including Bell's sketch of the first telephone and Morse's first telegraphic message.

The popular Web site already receives an average of 3 million hits per day, and with AT&T's contribution, the Library completes its effort to raise $45 million in private money for the NDL program. Library of Congress, Washington D.C., (202) 707-2905,
