The Republicans and Federalists in Pennsylvania, 1790-1801: A Study in National Stimulus and Local Response

By Harry Marlin Tinkcom | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is pleased to add this volume to its series of studies on the political history of the Commonwealth. In 1942 the Pennsylvania Historical Commission* published The Counter-Revolution in Pennsylvania, 1776-1790, by Robert L. Brunhouse. This earlier volume and the present work are the result of research completed at the University of Pennsylvania, under the direction of Dr. Roy F. Nichols, outstanding authority in the field of political history. A third volume covering succeeding years is already scheduled for publication.

The Commission, therefore, is continuing the policy of publishing such noteworthy contributions to Pennsylvania history, which might not otherwise find their way into print. Unfortunately, it is not the common practice today to publish doctoral dissertations. Many splendid contributions to history gather dust in manuscript form on the library shelves of the particular university where they were completed. It has been a policy of the Commission for some years to rescue certain distinguished works of this character from possible oblivion and to present them as additions to the historical literature of the Commonwealth. This plan, the Commission believes, has been greeted with enthusiasm by all students of Pennsylvania history. As a result of this program, many glaring gaps in the story of Pennsylvania's development are being filled.

Through the generosity of the Governor of the Commonwealth, James H. Duff, and of the General Assembly, this particular Commission was the recipient of unusually liberal appropriations for historical research and publications. This publication is one of several which will continue to appear, and which were made possible by these appropriations. The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission is grateful to the Governor, to the members of the General Assembly, and to the people of the Commonwealth, who have combined to make possible this and other worthy additions to the growing number of books and research projects which add to our store of knowledge about Pennsylvania's past.

CHARLES J. BIDDLE, Chairman Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission

February 2, 1950
