HISTORY:  Organization in Concord, Mass., established in 1886 by a group of Concordians devoted to preserving and promoting local history, Judge John Shepard Keyes the prime mover among them.  The collection of antiquarian Cummings E. Davis (a descendant of Concord settler Dolor Davis) formed the nucleus around which the Society’s holdings grew over time.  Davis’s collection consisted of (as described by David Wood in The Concord Museum: Decorative Arts from a New England Collection, 1996, p. xv) “mostly colonial artifacts with local histories.”  In 1887, the organization purchased the Reuben Brown House on Lexington Road, where it stored and displayed its collection until moving in 1930 to a new building (designed by noted Concord architect Harry Britton Little) at the intersection of Lexington Road and the Cambridge Turnpike.  In the first decade of the twentieth century, the Society organized its holdings into period room groupings.  In 1911, it published a catalog of its collection, prepared by its Secretary George Tolman, a local historian and genealogist.  Beginning in 1930, the collection expanded significantly through gifts by Russell Hawes Kettell, an expert on and collector of early American furniture.  Although its focus was from the first on decorative arts, by the 1970s the Concord Antiquarian Society had also amassed a sizeable collection of manuscripts, printed ephemera, and books and pamphlets.  Most but not all of  this material was connected to Concord by author, subject, or provenance.  Since the Society’s focus was primarily on the display and interpretation of material culture in its museum (referred to variously as the Museum of the Concord Antiquarian Society, the Concord Antiquarian Museum, and the Concord Museum), organization and description of and research access to these documentary holdings were limited.  During the early 1970s, the Society’s Board of Governors voted initially to deposit these materials in, and ultimately to give them to, the Concord Free Public Library.  The Concord Antiquarian Society is known today as the Concord Museum.            

SCOPE AND CONTENT:  A heterogeneous collection of manuscript papers, records, ephemera, publications, and materials in other documentary forms.  Items in the collection date from 1422 to 1957, with most of the collection falling between 1676 and 1957.  Most items are connected to Concord in some way (by author, subject, or provenance), but a significant percentage consists of non-Concord materials or items only marginally related to Concord.

Series I.  Papers, documents, records, and ephemera filed by personal, family, or organizational name, 1676-1957:  This series constitutes most of the collection.

One significant item that a researcher might not expect to find in the Concord Antiquarian Society Collection is a 1676 manuscript sermon preached by the Reverend Robert Rigby at Chirk Church in Wales.  This manuscript comes from the extensive and well-known collection of Sir Thomas Phillipps, and is labeled “Phillipps MS 10670.”

Series II.  Items organized by form, 1422-1946 (bulk 1697-1946):  This series contains minimally identified materials in a variety of material types and sizeable runs of periodicals, newspapers, and World War II posters, grouped in nine subseries by form rather than by name (account books; scrapbook; manuscripts; tintype; cartoons; printed ephemera; periodicals; newspapers; World War II posters). 

The subseries Account books contains: an account book kept by an unidentified Boston merchant and one kept by an unidentified Concord merchant; fragments of two account books (one for a Boston business, one for a Smithfield, Rhode Island business); and a blank (unused) soft-cover ledger volume.  The subseries Scrapbook consists of a scrapbook kept by an unidentified Boston or Boston-area compiler.  The subseries Manuscripts includes: a fragment of a manuscript in Italian on vellum (dated 1422; the earliest item in the Concord Antiquarian Society Collection); three documents on parchment (one a fragment only); a poem; a listing of births (family name not given); prayers and religious reflections by an unidentified writer; a manuscript headed “B.Watson,” opening with the words “What is conscience?”; a fragment of a manuscript diary of sermons; and a sheaf of sermons and religious reflections.  The subseries Tintype consists of one tintype from a portrait of an unidentified man.  The subseries Cartoons contains a single sheet of paper with a Civil War period cartoon sketched in pencil on each side.  The subseries Printed ephemera includes an envelope with an engraved portrait (John Charles Frémont?) and an engraved invitation (Inaugural Reception Promenade Concert, 1881).  The subseries Periodicals consists of issues of The American Quarterly Review, The Edinburgh Review, and The North American Review, most of them from the collection of the Reverend Hersey Bradford Goodwin.  The subseries Newspapers includes issues of newspapers and newspaper supplements or inserts published in various American locations, a number of them in Boston (some fifty titles represented).  The subseries World War II posters consists of twenty-eight wartime posters (most represented by two or more copies), some by named artists (Norman Rockwell, Stevan Dohanos, Edmundson, E. McKnight Kauffer).

PROVENANCE:  The Concord Antiquarian Society acquired the manuscript, ephemeral, and printed holdings in this collection from many gifts by numerous donors over a period of decades, from the late nineteenth into the mid-twentieth century.  When specified in the descriptive information provided to the Library by the Society at the time the collection was transferred, donor name, date of donation to the CAS, and CAS number are included in the container list below. 

SOURCE OF ACQUISITION:  The Concord Antiquarian Society deposited the collection in the Concord Free Public Library in October of 1971.  Negotiations toward a permanent gift took place in 1972 and 1973.  The Board of Governors of the Concord Antiquarian Society voted in November of 1973 to make the deposit a gift, and the Concord Free Public Library Corporation voted the following month to accept the gift.  The formal transfer of the collection was complete by or in early 1974.

ACCESS/PERMISSIONS:  The Concord Free Public Library is the sole owner of the Concord Antiquarian Society Collection here described.  All questions about access and permissions should be directed to the Curator of the Library’s William Munroe Special Collections.   

ASSOCIATED COLLECTIONS:  A number of separately cataloged collections and items in the Concord Free Public Library’s Special Collections were removed from the Concord Antiquarian Society Collection after its donation to the Library in the 1970s (see Processing History, below).  The Library also holds several collections donated later by the Concord Museum.  Additionally, the Library has acquired from sources other than the Concord Antiquarian Society/Concord Museum some collections relating to, or including items relating to, the Society’s activities and holdings (John Shepard Keyes Papers, 1837-1908; George Tolman Papers, ca. 1857-1904; Winnifred Sturdy Collection of Papers and Records Connected Primarily with Concord, Mass, 1663-1951; Allen French Papers Relating to the Proposed Transfer of the Adams Tolman Collection of Native American Artifacts from the Concord Free Public Library to the Concord Antiquarian Society, 1933-1934).  The Concord Museum retains its own organizational archives, and also some manuscript and printed materials directly related to its decorative arts holdings.   

PROCESSING HISTORY:  For nearly two decades after its acquisition by the Concord Free Public Library, the Concord Antiquarian Society Collection was shelved according to an internal numbering system established by the Society, with patron access provided through handwritten or typed catalog cards containing a line or two of identifying information. 

Once the collection was formally donated to the Library, CFPL staff began removing certain types of materials (for example, Concord-related broadsides and ephemera, printed books and pamphlets, and photographs) that might be added to established collections or serve as replacements for worn copies of much-used items.  Some coherent sub-collections (Frank Merrill’s illustrations for the 1880 Roberts Brothers edition of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and Stow family papers, for instance) were removed from the collection and handled as discrete units.  Some items (volumes of Middlesex Agricultural Society records and Reuben Brown account books among them) were combined with similar Library holdings to form more comprehensive collections.  This process continued into the 1990s.

In 1996, under a grant to the Concord Free Public Library by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC grant number 95-048), Project Assistant Sheri Kelley roughly reorganized the CAS Collection (minus materials that had earlier been removed from it), discarding CAS order in favor of a system that recognized personal, family, and organizational names as the points of entry by which researchers typically access manuscript and archival collections, and that also took into account the advisability of grouping some types of materials by form rather than name.

In 1997, volunteer and former intern Ruthanne Sheinkopf reworked portions of the reorganized collection and prepared a preliminary finding aid for a major part of it.  In 2005 and 2006, Curator Leslie Wilson refined the organizational scheme, arranged all materials in the collection within it, prepared this full descriptive finding aid (recording CAS numbers and available information on the source of each item’s acquisition by the Society), and rehoused the entire collection.

Because this finding aid does not include material removed from the Concord Antiquarian Society Collection to other Library collections over the years, it represents only a part of the holdings given by the Society to the Concord Free Public Library in the 1970s.  However, the Library’s online cataloging and electronic finding aids for discrete collections consisting of or including CAS materials systematically provide CAS numbers and acquisition information.       

PROCESSED BY:  LPW; finding aid completed 04/06.  Processing assistance provided by volunteers Reed Anthony, Bette Aschaffenburg, and Jiro Ishihara.
