The Massachusetts Historical Review invites you. . .
We invite you to submit original essays, photo-essays, or edited historical documents on any aspect of Massachusetts history from its founding to the twenty-first century. The MHR is especially interested in manuscripts examining race, ethnicity, immigration, environmental history, and gender to help recover the legacy of the forgotten.
Founded in 1999, the MHR is a peer-reviewed journal published each fall by the Massachusetts Historical Society. Last year, the American Association for State and Local History awarded the journal a certificate of commendation for “achievement in local, state, and regional history.” The MHR reaches both scholars and general readers and now, through the History Cooperative and our website, articles in the MHR will reach readers around the globe.
Volume 6 (2004) includes: Alfred D. Chandler’s “Luck and the Shaping of a Historian’s Professional Education”; Frank Bremer’s “Remembering—and Forgetting—John Winthrop and the Puritan Founders”; Richard F. Miller’s “For His Wife, His Widow, and His Orphan: Massachusetts and Family Aid during the Civil War”; and the cover essay by Glenn Stout, “Tryout and Fallout: Race, Jackie Robinson, and the Red Sox.” This fall, expect to see essays on the irrepressible Benjamin F. Butler, Margaret Fuller and Caroline Dall, Wendell Phillips and slavery reparations, a stunning photo-essay on Brockton, Massachusetts, and a major review of recent writings on the Transcendentalists.
