Administrative Information

Access Restrictions

NOTE: The letters are digitized and are available in New-York Historical Society's Digital Collections. Patrons are asked to refer to these digital versions, rather than call for the originals, as much as possible.

The original letters remain folded, inside their original envelopes. If they must be consulted, remove only one letter from a box at a time, and use a flag to mark the place of that letter. Exercise extreme caution when removing letters from their envelopes, which are often in poor condition.

Photocopying undertaken by staff only. Limited to twenty exposures of stable, unbound material per day. (Researchers may not accrue unused copy amounts from previous days.)

Open to qualified researchers.

Use Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States governs the making of photocopies and protects unpublished materials as well as published materials. Unpublished materials created before January 1, 1978 cannot be quoted in publication without permission of the copyright holder.

Preferred Citation Note

Thist collection should be cited as the Benjamin Segan Letters, MS 3024, New-York Historical Society.

Immediate Source of Acquisition Note

Processing Information Note

The collection was processed by archivist Joseph Ditta in April 2017. The collection was processed to only a minimal extent. Consequently, the letters remain folded in their original envelopes and the scope note in this finding aid may not include the full range of subject matter covered in the letters because only a small sample was reviewed for content.
