A list of the manuscript collections in the Quaker Archives appears on this web site to provide researchers with additional information about our holdings. Researchers are strongly encouraged to make an appointment with the Quaker Librarian in advance if they wish to have access to these materials. The Quaker Archives staff is not able to take on research projects for individuals and does not provide large scale reproduction services for manuscript materials. The majority of the collections are original materials acquired by the Quaker Archives. Some collections are photocopies or typescripts of original materials held either privately or by other institutions. Very few of the Quaker Archives manuscript holdings are available on-line at this time. There are links to finding aids and related collections for some entries and additional finding aids will be added as they become available. We also have incoming collection which may be available for consultation by appointment that are not yet listed in this guide. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manuscript Collections are listed alphabetically (usually by surname) by collection name. Dates listed pertain to the dates of materials in the collection and a brief description is usually provided. Additional information, such as finding aids and related links, are provided when available.
