Research

The Society’s archival collections were moved off-site during preparations for our November 2016 building move and will remain closed for the next several months. Staff will have limited ability to answer research queries or fulfill reproduction requests. We suggest searching the online catalog and any potentially relevant online exhibitions before contacting us.
 

To ask a research question, email our archivists at info@jhsgw.org. We will try to respond to all research requests within 10 business days.
