New Members Elected to AAS

AAS was founded not only as an independent research library but also as a learned society. Members are nominated by existing members, staff, and other friends, and are elected at twice-yearly members meetings. Members encompass a wide variety of scholars, both academic and independent, librarians and curators, collectors of Americana, booksellers and others who deal in manuscripts, newspapers, graphic arts, and ephemera, as well as those who have achieved distinction in a range of fields. AAS members range from history buffs working in finance to poets who engage with the American past to local Worcesterites who value a local resource.
