Overview

The Winthrop Papers is one of the great institutional collections of American family manuscripts available. The documents range over three centuries, include both private and public papers, and are especially rich in 17th-century materials. There are, however, also sizeable concentrations of documents from the 18th and 19th centuries.

The set covers Winthrop family contributions ranging from those of Governor John Winthrop (1588-1649) to those of Robert C. Winthrop, Jr. (1834-1905), as well as members of the related Bowdoin and Temple families. Included are original documents in the form of letters, deeds, diaries, account books, medical, legal, and genealogical records, diplomas and commissions, inventories and estate settlements, scrapbooks, and books and pamphlets written by or about members of the Winthrop family.

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