Discovering The Mary Baker Eddy Library Collections
Roadmaps and Fellowships
October 23, 2003
The Mary Baker Eddy Library for the Betterment of Humanity
200 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston
Long a closely held archive accessible to few researchers, The Mary Baker Eddy Library collections—a trove of rich primary source material by and about one of America’s most accomplished women—are now open to the public for research and publication. Housed in the newly-opened Mary Baker Eddy Library, which is already being recognized as a premier research facility, the collections promise to be the source of a host of new publications in the fields of biography, women’s history, religious history, and spirituality and health.
Who should attend:
Scholars, researchers, publishers, authors, graduate students, and other interested parties are invited to a program that describes the Library collections and their research potential in the fields of women’s studies, spirituality and health, religious history, and 19th century American history. Three noted scholars—Dr. Ann Braude of Harvard Divinity School, Dr. David Hufford of Penn State College of Medicine, and Dr. Judith Wellman, Professor Emerita of SUNY Oswego—will present their “roadmaps” or thematic analyses of the research potential of the collections.
New fellowship program announced:
The Mary Baker Eddy Library is also announcing the availability of fellowships to support qualified researchers for up to three months of work in the Library collections during the
summer of 2004.
