William Hickling Prescott

By C. Harvey Gardiner | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This biographical study of William Hickling Prescott is based upon the generous cooperation of many individuals and institutions.

The late Roger Wolcott, of Milton, Massachusetts, a great-grandson of William Hickling Prescott and the owner of the largest and most significant collection of Prescott papers, once more has accorded the present writer the widest access and the most unrestricted use of the papers of his famous kinsman. Mr. Wolcott's cooperation, indispensable to the fulfillment of this project, is deeply appreciated.

Similar sentiments of indebtedness and gratitude are directed to the Massachusetts Historical Society, the depository of this richest collection of materials about Prescott. In the Society's library the William H. Prescott papers are admirably supplemented by almost a dozen other collections which impinge upon Prescott's career. For access to and for assistance while working with these materials, thanks are directed to the Massachusetts Historical Society, director Stephen T. Riley, Winifred Collins, John D. Cushing, Malcolm Freiberg, and Warren G. Wheeler.

At Harvard University, where numerous other collections touch Prescott's carcer, words of appreciation are extended to the late William A. Jackson, librarian of Houghton; to Carolyn E. Jakeman, in charge of the reading room of The Houghton Library; to Kimball C. Elkins, senior assistant in the Harvard University Archives; and to the photographic services of Harvard College Library.

Boston Public Library, another holder of multiple collections related to the life of Prescott, is deserving of sincere expressions of thanks. Foremost there among those who aided the present project are Zoltán Haraszti, late keeper of rare books, John Alden, keeper of rare books,
