A traditional focus of collecting in the Watkinson since it opened on August 28, 1866, has been American periodicals, and there is quite a good representation of them from the late 18th to the early 20th centuries. We hope that our students, faculty, and other researchers will appreciate this series of annotated guides to our periodicals, broken down into basic themes (politics, music, science and medicine, children, education, women, etc.), and listed in chronological order by date of the title's first issue.
