RG I-B-1: General records. Letterbooks — Bound. Volume 15

Letters and other documents received by the American Academy from Members, other learned societies and institutions, and the general public, from 1911 to 1913.

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 15, the President of the Academy was John Trowbridge (1908-1915). 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 15 contains letters and other documents received by the American Academy from 1911-1913. Beginning with this volume, letterbooks increasingly recorded primarily the acceptance letters of the Academy’s members. The majority of the incoming correspondence within this letterbook pertains to the election, resignation, and death of members. Other topics, of lesser number, include notices of member deaths, circulars from national and international scientific societies and institutions, announcements of international congresses and invitations to various institutional anniversaries. There is also correspondence with local Boston organizations such as the Colonial Society and the American Antiquarian Society. Some correspondence pertains to the financial and administrative activities of the Academy, such as the transfer of a bust on deposit at the Athenaeum back into the possession of the Academy, and a bequest to the Academy of the property of Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford.

Volume

1 volume contained within 2 document cases, Boxes 0288.4 and 0289.1 (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.
