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 manuscripts of lectures and addresses (NYHS-RG 11) are as follows:

The New-York Historical Society general correspondence record group (NYHS-RG 2) contains a variety of materials relating to N-YHS lectures, including proposals and direct invitation responses, scheduling and further logistical arrangements (including accompaniments such as lantern slides), updates on research and presentation topics, ephemera such as announcements and programs, discussion of events by members, and subsequent discourse on the publication of lectures. Researchers are advised to consult files within a 2-year time frame surrounding the delivery of the address at N-YHS.

Processing Information Note

In circa 2010, the documents in this record group were processed into archival folders, arranged in alphabetical order by author. A partial list of the contents was prepared by Annie Tummino. In August 2015, project archivist Larry Weimer re-arranged the record group into chronological order and, building on Ms.Tummino's earlier work, completed the content list and finding aid.

Accruals Note

Accruals of additional lectures and addresses are expected to be added to the record group from time to time.
