Digital Archives of the New York Academy of Sciences

The New York Academy of Sciences collection contains a vast range of original sources that has shaped two centuries of scientific progress.  Including both the institutional records–bylaws, minutes, correspondence, administrative files, etc.–of the NYAS and the records of associated projects and scholars, this material reveals how a world class scientific society supported and shaped several disciplines, including medical research, botany, zoology, and climate science.
The records of several major projects are included:
  • Survey of Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands
  • Committee on Human Rights of Scientists
  • The [New York] Harbor Project
