Quick Reference

Founded in 1791 by Jeremy Belknap and other historical scholars, whose gift of books and manuscripts became the nucleus of its present great collection. This, the first organization of its kind in the U.S., began to make available its Americana by publishing volumes of collections, augmented by a series of Proceedings and special publications. Among the many notable documents thus published for the first time are Bradford's History of Plimmoth Plantation and The Diary and Letter Books of Samuel Sewall. Its collections were first published in the American Apollo (1792–94), a Federalist weekly newspaper.
