Chocolatespoon: Emily’s Musings

Posted on: April 3, 2006

Via Research Buzz comes a cool Archive Grid. According to the description:

ArchiveGrid is an important destination for searching through historical documents, personal papers, and family histories held in archives around the world.

Thousands of libraries, museums, and archives have contributed nearly a million collection descriptions to ArchiveGrid. Researchers searching ArchiveGrid can learn about the many items in each of these collections, contact archives to arrange a visit to examine materials, and order copies.

ArchiveGrid is available to both individuals and institutions free of charge through May 31st. If additional grants funds or sponsorship are obtained, ArchiveGrid will remain free of charge; otherwise subscriptions will be available for institutions and individuals alike.

So, naturally, I tried out some queries and here are some of the things I learned:

Aaron Rabinowitz business records, 1938-1980 are at the Cornell University Libary. You can even see the container list of what is included (of course this was one of the top google hits for him anyway, so its not a new find) I wonder though what “The White Block” was?

Mary Steichen Calderone Papers. Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe College were apparently “Accessioned From Aaron and Clara Rabinowitz Greenhut” or possilbly paid for by the “Aaron and Clara Rabinowitz Greenhut Fund” but I can’t find any other mention of a connection there and one of the pages is broken.

and I bet there’s tons more to discover…
