This Week @ MHS

This week we have two evening events: a special event for MHS members and fellows and a seminar. Plus the exhibition hall and portrait gallery are open daily.  

On Tuesday, 26 April at 5:30 PM there is a special Behind-the-Scenes Tour for MHS members and fellows.  The event does require an advance RSVP and space is limited.  Call 617-646-0554 with questions or to reserve your space.  This unique opportunity to glimpse the inner workings of a manuscript repository, and other special events scheduled throughout the year, is just one of the benefits of being an MHS member.  Visit our membership page for additional information.

On Thursday, 28 April at 5:15 PM you can join us for the next installment of the Boston Immigration and Urban History Seminar series.  This week Timothy B. Neary of Salve Regina University will present his paper "A Catholic 'League of Nations': Redefining Ethnic and Civic Identity in New Deal Chicago."  The comment will be provided by Howard P. Chudacoff of Brown University.  Advance copies of the paper -- and other papers in this series -- are available through the MHS website for a small subscription fee. 

And do not forget that our current exibition History Drawn with Light: Early Photographs from the Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society is open Monday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM.  The exhibition runs through 3 June.  With May approaching quickly, June will be here before you know it! Do not miss your chance to view the exhibition. 

Finally please note that there will not a building tour on Saturday, 30 April.  The tour will return on Saturday, 7 May.
