Jervis McEntee Diaries and Letters: Diary, Volume I, 1872 May 10-1874 November 20

Have you ever wanted to explore the tiny day-to-day details of an artist's life 150 years ago? Then join the Archives of American Art as we transcribe the Jervis McEntee diaries and letters! Hudson River School painter Jervis McEntee (1828-1891) was one of the leading New York artists during the late 19th century and an incredibly prolific diarist. In his almost 4,500 diary entries in 1872-1890, McEntee records his thoughts, observations, activities, encounters, and anxieties. He paints a vivid picture of an artist's daily life with his words, and he provides a window on the New York art scene during and after the Gilded Age.

Project PHaEDRA - Evelyn F. Leland - Observing Book #57

At Harvard College Observatory (now the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian), women computers studied glass plate photographs of the night sky. Here they catalogued stars, identifying variables, interpreting stellar spectra, counting galaxies, and measuring the vast distances in space. Several of them made game-changing discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics. Interested in historical women? Love astronomy? Help us transcribe the work of the Harvard Observatory's women computers and see which stars shine the brightest. You can sign up for our Project PHaEDRA newsletter here. Have questions?
