The New England Indian Papers Series: The Massachusetts Collection, First Contact to 1869

Preparation for digital publication of a scholarly critical edition of primary source materials about Native Americans in Massachusetts from 1649 to 1869. See website at

The project will consist of the first three years of the editorial preparation and electronic publication of a portion of the second state series, The Massachusetts Collection. This effort will begin the creation of a fundamental base of historical documentation assembled from primary source materials on the Native Americans who lived within the geographical limits of the colonies of Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay, their history, culture, and long interactions with Euro-Americans in what is now the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Editors propose to transcribe, annotate, and publish 900 recently digitized primary source materials dating from 1649 to 1869 from the Indian collections within several different archives.
