RG I-B-1: General records. Letterbooks — Bound. Volume 13

Letters and other documents received by the American Academy from Members, other learned societies and institutions, and the general public, from 1905 to 1908.

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 13, the President of the Academy was William Watson Goodwin (903-1908). The Corresponding Secretary was 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 13 contains letters, circulars and other documents received by the American Academy during 1905-1908. 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 note is an invitation to the American Philosophical Society’s 1906 celebration of the two-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Franklin, and form letters from the Nobel Committee soliciting suggestions for awardees.

Volume

1 volume contained within 2 document cases, Boxes 0288.1 -0288.2 (0.5 linear feet)

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.
