  • Aug 11 - Immigration - 1789 to 1930

    Comment: Immigration - 1789 to 1930
    Harvard University presents a web-based collection on Immigration to the United States, 1789-1930.

    Immigration to the US, 1789-1930 is a web-based collection of selected historical materials from Harvard's libraries, archives, and museums that documents voluntary immigration to the United States from the signing of the Constitution to the onset of the Great Depression. For Internet users worldwide, Immigration to the US provides unparalleled, free and open digital access to a significant selection of unique source materials-more than 410,000 pages, 100 individually cataloged maps, and 7,800 photographs.

    The immigration debate of the day routinely ignores the deep and historical roots of immigration in the US. This website provides an antidote to this historical blindness. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com.
