HSP has many collections that require organization, improved descriptions, and preservation in order to ensure that they are properly cared for and accessible to researchers. We need your help to move ahead with this work! Donations to assist us with "processing" collections will provide for preservation and repair of manuscripts as needed, and will also enable us to properly organize, inventory, and catalog collections so that researchers can more easily identify relevant materials. Donors to the Adopt a Collection program receive special recognition on our website, in the Sidelights Member Newsletter, and on the collection's finding aid if one is created.

If you have any questions about the collections below, please contact Matthew Lyons at or 215-732-6200 ext. 301.
