Rarely do scholars and researchers find such a wealth of historical and genealogical materials on four such prominent families in one collection of materials.
Included are letters, journals, diaries, account books, business papers, genealogical tracings, manuscripts, and professional papers relating to many members of all four families. This collection also contains important material linking these families to other collections contained in this series, such as The Adams Papers, The Henry Knox Papers, The Oliver Family Papers, and The Timothy Pickering Papers.
This chronologically filmed set contains enough material for a definitive study of American history covering three centuries of Quincy, Wendell, Holmes, and Upham family contributions and achievements.
Titles from the Massachusetts Historical Society Collections may be purchased by individual reel.
