Summary
  • Boyd's address before the Albemarle County Historical Society, April 1941, discussed "A century and a half of historical societies in America."
  • The collection also contains a facsimile of a letter from Jefferson to [Ebenezer] Hazard, 1791 February 18, in which Jefferson lauds Hazard's efforts to publish early papers :"Time & accident are committing daily havoc on the originals deposited in our public offices. The late war has done the work of centuries in this business. The lost cannot be recovered; but let us save what remains : not by locks and vaults which fence them from the public eye and use in consigning them to the wastes of time, but by such a multiplication of copies as shall place them beyond the reach of accident."
