The Latest Issue of the Almanac Is Released

The fall edition of the AAS newsletter, the Almanac, is now up on the website and showcases some of the exciting things going on at AAS!

Some items featured include the opening of the Paul Revere exhibition at New-York Historical Society last month; a pictorial look at how we are utilizing our new Learning Lab and conservation spaces; an introduction to our new Director of Book History and Digital Initiatives, Kevin Wisniewski; and our 2019–20 long-term named fellows, Karen Sanchez-Eppler and Rachel Miller.

This issue also contains a photographic look at Antiquarian Hall through the lenses’ of Waldo Lincoln and Nate Fiske (over a century apart); our newest public program, which will engage the public with the staff curators; the lineup of the fall lecture series; a feature on the manuscript collection; staff news; member biographies; and so much more.

Finally, it was announced last month that AAS’s president, Ellen S. Dunlap, will be retiring in 2020; over the course of the next few issues of the Almanac we will be highlighting her invaluable legacy at the Society.
