RG I-B-1: General records. Letterbooks — Bound. Volume 10

Letters and other documents received by the American Academy from Members, other learned societies and institutions, and the general public, from 1892 to 1896.

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 10, the Presidents of the Academy were Joseph Lovering (1880-1892), Josiah Parsons Cooke (1892-1894), and Alexander Agassiz (1894-1903). The Corresponding Secretaries were Josiah Parsons Cooke (1873-1892), Charles Loring Jackson (1892-1896), and Samuel Hubbard Scudder (1896-1900).

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 10 contains letters, circulars and other documents received by the American Academy during 1892-1896. Most are in the form of incoming correspondence from members acknowledging their election, among who are Alexander Agassiz, George Ellery Hale, and Joseph Lister. Other topics include notices of member deaths, circulars from national and international scientific societies and institutions, announcements, and calls for papers. Of particular interest are documents regarding the acceptance of Esperanto, the World’s Columbian Exposition, a proposal by the Royal Society of London to create a universal catalog of scientific publications, and the thanks of the Rumford Historical Association for the gift of bronze replicas of the Rumford medals.

Volume

1 volume contained within 2 document cases, Boxes 0287.1-0287.2 (0.5 linear feet)

Arrangement

The Academy has begun disbinding the volumes and conserving the individual letters, and will continue that practice until all letters are in stable condition. The letterbooks in Series I-B 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. Multiple unrelated documents on one support page are labeled a, b; enclosures or envelopes are labeled e.
