Description:
Manuscript Women’s Letters and Diaries from the American Antiquarian Society 1750-1950 brings together 100,000 pages of the personal writings of women of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, displayed as high-quality images of the original manuscripts, and extensively indexed. The collection is drawn entirely from the holdings of the American Antiquarian Society. The writings in Manuscript Women’s Letters and Diaries are by women from New England families, but this is by no means a “New England collection.” The women wrote from the many places throughout the U.S. in which they lived, traveled, worked, studied, and observed the lives and historical events around them.
