Related Archival Materials Note

This finding aid relates to just one record group of the New-York Historical Society archives. For information about the other record groups and for overall information about the archives, please see the Guide to the New-York Historical Society Archives (NYHS-RG Archives). Other record groups that are processed and available to researchers and are especially related to the New-York Historical Society management committee records (NYHS-RG 1) are as follows:

Although this management committee record group holds reports and includes references in the minute books to the work of the various buildings committees active in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to 1938, most material on the subject of building construction, including several standalone committee minute books, will be found in the New-York Historical Society original buildings planning & construction records (NYHS-RG 3).

For the early to mid-nineteenth century records, there is not a consistently sharp distinction between the content of the official papers and of the correspondence files that were maintained by N-YHS. Accordingly, researchers should also see New-York Historical Society general correspondence (NYHS-RG 2).

Processing Information Note

The record group was processed in 2015 by project archivist Larry Weimer.
