Descriptive Summary

REGISTER Industrial Notes from Old Newspapers

MS.481

Maryland Historical Society

Baltimore MD 21201-4674

Karen A. Stuart

July 1981

 


Scope and Content

The Industrial Notes scrapbooks were given to the Maryland Historical Society in 1957 by Ralph J. Robinson, presumably the compiler. They contain typed transcriptions of advertisements and other notices from seven newspapers chiefly covering the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. A list of the newspapers follows.

The organization and indexing of the scrapbooks is idiosyncratic at best. The original subject headings and arrangement have been retained, however, in an effort to preserve the integrity of the collection as scrapbooks. Changes have been made only to ensure consistency and to eliminate cross references which lead nowhere. The index in its original form may be found in the folder labelled COMPILER'S INDEX in box 1. Researchers are advised to make a thorough check of the index which follows. It may be necessary to pursue a number of seemingly unrelated entries in order to discover all pertinent material.

The scrapbooks, originally kept in three ring binders, were transferred to the present box-and-folder arrangement in June 1981 as a conservation measure.
