fellowships tenable for one to three months each year.

AAS collects not only rare or unique items, but since its founding in 1812, the American Antiquarian Society have amassed great quantities of materials that reflect the "stuff" of everyday life--works that describe all aspects of American history, literature and culture, and the ways we have lived as individuals and as communities.
