RG I-B-1: General Records. Letterbooks — Bound. Volume 03

Letters and other documents received by the American Academy from Members, other learned societies and institutions, and the general public, from 1803 to 1818.

ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION


Historical note

The Academy has received letters, announcements, and other forms of correspondence since the founding in 1780. All such correspondence was the responsibility of the Corresponding Secretary, one of the original officers of the Academy. Beginning sometime in the late 1800s, incoming letters were pasted into bound scrapbooks, which the Academy referred to as “letterbooks.” This practice continued until 1988, when staff began saving correspondence in folders.

For the time period covered by Volume 3, the Presidents of the Academy were John Adams (1791-1814) and Edward Augustus Holyoke (1814-1820). The Corresponding Secretaries were John Quincy Adams (1802-1809) and Josiah Quincy (1809-1823).

Scope and Content

The series of letterbooks in its entirety includes letters from newly-elected Fellows, formally accepting their elections; communications with other learned societies (especially, invitations to attend meetings or send representatives to official events, and offers to exchange publications); correspondence concerning gifts of books, maps, and natural history specimens; and inquiries from members and nonmembers regarding the submission and publication of articles.

Volume 3 contains letters and other documents received by the American Academy from 1803 to 1818. Most of this incoming correspondence pertains to the election of members and other administrative duties. Other significant topics include publication of the Academy Memoirs, donations of publications to the Academy Library, donations of specimen to the Academy Cabinet, and to a lesser degree, correspondence with other national and international academic societies. A small portion of materials related to a range of scientific subjects are those on natural science, mortality, and meteorology. Scientific information was submitted in the form of descriptions of experiments, observations, reports and speeches, specimens and samples, maps and sketches, and data sets.

Volume

1 volume contained within 1.5 document cases (0.75 linear feet)

Arrangement

The Academy has begun disbinding the volumes of letterbooks and conserving the individual letters, and will continue that practice until all letters are in stable condition. The letterbooks in Series I-B-1 are arranged numerically by volume number. Within each volume, the original order of the pages has been retained. Generally the records are arranged in chronological order. Pages numbered with a “v” indicate that the document was pasted to the verso of the preceding page, and normally relates to document on the following page.
