The Melville Society Archive
The Melville Society Archive, housed in the Research Library of the New Bedford Whaling Museum, was dedicated in 2002. Maintained by the Melville Society Cultural Project, it is a growing collection of rare editions, scholarly books and papers, and art works. The Archive consists of five major book collections, as well as several smaller ones, papers of The Melville Society, collections of the papers of Jay Leyda, Walter Bezanson, and Joyce Sparer Adler, and an ever-growing art collection, augmented each year by a piece of contemporary Melville art created by a living artist.
