The original Freedom House: A Legacy Preserved web exhibit went online in 2003. It was based upon a physical exhibit that had been located in the display cases outside the Archives and Special Collections, in the lower-level of Snell Library at Northeastern University, from 1999 to early 2003. This version builds upon the design, text, and archival materials presented in the original. Contributors for the original exhibit included:

Creation of the physical exhibit: Nancy Richard
Creation of the web exhibit: April Hagins, as work for a Master of Library Science internship. Michelle Light, Assistant Archivist, and Northeastern University Co-op students, Funnya Bezverkhny and Katie Geiszler, provided additional assistance. Materials come from the Freedom House Records, available at the Northeastern University Archives and Special Collections.
