Under Its Generous Dome: The Collections and Programs of the American Antiquarian Society

The staff of the American Antiquarian Society chose to prepare the first edition of this guide for researchers as our contribution to the Society's 175th-anniversary celebration in 1987. The revised edition presented here was completed in 1992 as a tribute to AAS President Emeritus, Marcus A. McCorison, upon his retirement after more than three decades of distinguished service to the Society.
