In 1998, after becoming aware of the work being done by Dr. G. Ray Thompson at the Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture at Salisbury State University, Edward H. Nabb established a $500,000 endowment to support its mission. Edward Harwood Nabb, a lawyer from Cambridge, Maryland, was a proud Eastern Shoreman who loved its history and culture. Excited by the history of the area, Nabb declared, “Let’s face it, this Chesapeake Bay region is where the United States began.” The Center also gained an additional 6,000 square feet expanding further into the Power Professional Building.
