Related Organizations

Townsend's dream of an Alphabet Museum was an extension of the vision of the organizations that he founded to serve minority language groups around the world. These organizations, along with others which developed to support them, include:

  • The Summer Institute of Linguistics, now SIL International, with international headquarters in Dallas, Texas, USA, was created to study minority languages around the world.
  • The Wycliffe Bible Translators International, with international headquarters in Dallas, Texas, USA, was created to help provide a translation of the Bible in languages that do not yet have it.
  • JAARS provides equipment, training, and high quality technical services through qualified personnel in field locations where the SIL International serves around the world. Areas of support include: aviation, telecommunications, computers, and other services such as purchasing and shipping, trucking, construction and maintenance, and vernacular media.
  • The International Museum of Culture provides permanent displays of minority cultures at the International Linguistics Center in Dallas, Texas.
