The MHR, a peer-reviewed annual journal of the Massachusetts Historical
Society, seeks articles on any aspect of the history of the Commonwealth,
its place in the region and nation, and the lives of its citizens. We are
especially interested in recovering the legacies of the forgotten and wish
to bring the highest scholarship to the widest possible audience.
Now in its third year, the MHR has published essays on topics from colonial
history and the American Revolution to the Industrial Revolution and the
creation of the Internet. Our contributors include some of the best
writers working in the field of history today, skilled in their craft and

scholars who are familiarizing our readers with some of the latest trends and the newest discoveries in American history.
