RG I-B-1: General records. Letterbooks — Bound. Volume 12

Letters and other documents received by the American Academy from Members, other learned societies and institutions, and the general public, from 1901 to 1905.

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 12, the Presidents of the Academy were Alexander Agassiz (1894-1903) and William Watson Goodwin (903-1908). The Corresponding Secretaries were William Morris Davis (1900-1904) and Edwin Herbert Hall (1904-1915).

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 12 contains letters, circulars and other documents received by the American Academy during 1901-1905. Most from members are in the form of incoming correspondence acknowledging their election. Other topics include notices of member deaths, circulars from national and international scientific societies and institutions, announcements of international congresses and invitations to various institutional anniversaries. Of particular interest are the announcements of the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis and form letters from the Nobel Committee soliciting suggestions for awardees.

Volume

1 volume contained within 2 document cases, Boxes 0287.4-0287.5 (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.
