Due to the current public health situation the Massachusetts Historical Society remains closed to the public until further notice. Our staff is currently working with access to the collections and is able to process low-resolution (reference), high resolution (publication quality), and photo print orders.
Please note that due to the volume of requests currently being received, and limitations on staff access to collections, the wait time for low-resolution (reference) reproduction requests is expected to be 2-3 months. When we reach your request in the queue we will contact you for final order confirmation prior to processing the request. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Rush services are not being offered at this time.
Citation/quotation permission requests and licensing-only requests for images are being processed as normal at this time.
If you would like to consult with the reproductions coordinator regarding a reproduction or publication/permission request please 617-646-0532 and leave a voicemail or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
