Released to the Reliance Society Jan 28, 2021. Public Release Feb 4, 2021

The Chronicle was a paper newsletter published by HMM between 1979 and 2001 and is an important piece of HMM’s history. It featured museum news and updates as well as lengthier articles by HMM curators and staff, guest researchers, writers, photographers, Herreshoff family members, owners and sailors. We are pleased to be able to present “30 Chronicles: the Collected Newsletters of the Herreshoff Marine Museum” in this digitized and searchable format on our website on the occasion of HMM’s 50th anniversary year. HMM would like to acknowledge Maynard Bray and the Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné for making this digital edition possible through their processing and transcription efforts.
