Documents


When the Colonial Society ceased publishing Transactions of its meetings after 1954, it began to focus its attention on book-length documents and the proceedings of its conferences. With the launch of its new website in 2017, the Society once again welcomes the submission of transcriptions of short documents (together with appropriate scholarly introductions and annotations) here in this space. Scholars wishing to publish in this format should submit proposals to John W. Tyler, Editor of Publications, Colonial Society of Massachusetts, 87 Mount Vernon Street, Boston, MA 02108 according to the specifications found here.
