The Mineta-Simpson Institute at Heart Mountain
& the LaDonna Zall Research Lab
The leadership of the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation is thrilled to announce the Mineta-Simpson Institute at Heart Mountain, a planned expansion to our award-winning interpretive center and a bold new vision for the future of our organization.
The Mineta-Simpson Institute will be a dedicated retreat space at Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, a home for workshops and programming specifically designed to foster empathy, courage, and cooperation in the next generation of leaders.
We are inspired in this endeavor by the lives, accomplishments, and—most of all—the friendship of Senator Alan K. Simpson and Secretary Norman Y. Mineta, who met as boys at Heart Mountain and have spent decades putting aside their personal differences to work together and better the lives of all Americans.
The new expansion will also house the LaDonna Zall Research Lab, where researchers will be able to access our library and make use of original archives and artifacts in the Heart Mountain collections. This space is dedicated to the memory of our friend and benefactor, LaDonna Zall, with gratitude for all she did to preserve these important memories of Heart Mountain.
We invite you to join us as one of the first donors to contribute to this important project.
