Overview

The main body of this collection consists of the Massachusetts Historical Society's collection of John Hancock papers. It was extensively supplemented by letters drawn from other Society manuscripts and includes correspondence by Dorothy, Ebenezer, Lydia, Mary, and Thomas Hancock. The collection of Hancock Family letters provides insight into one of America's best-known Revolutionary-era families as they, with others, struggled to build a new nation.

Titles from the Massachusetts Historical Society Collections may be purchased by individual reel.
