Tuesday, August 24
Research and Resources at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania  (Meetings)
6:30 pm to 8:15 pm
On-line Virtual Meeting (Free)
Speaker: Dr. Lee Arnold
Senior Director of the Library & Collections, Chief Operating Officer
 
Founded in 1824, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP) is one of the largest family history libraries in the nation, has excellent collections on local and regional history and offers a manuscript collection renowned for its 17th-, 18th-, and 19th-century holdings. HSP houses many national treasures, such as the first draft of the United States Constitution, an original printer’s proof of the Declaration of Independence, and the earliest surviving American photograph. But the true strength of the Society' collection is the overall breadth and depth of materials that together offer a rich, complex portrait of U.S. history and society from the 17th century to the present.
 
In this presentation, Library Director Lee Arnold, using case studies, will speak on the various ways researchers use the collections of the HSP for historical and genealogical research.  Particular focus will be on the Society’s North Carolina Collection.
