New Hampshire Historical Society Library

 

The Society’s Tuck Library preserves the finest collection of printed, manuscript, and pictorial materials relating to New Hampshire history anywhere. The library is named for the Society's greatest benefactor, Edward Tuck,

who, in the early 1900s, donated funds to build a new library for the Society. Tuck, a native of Exeter, and his wife, Julia (1850-1928), were generous philanthropists in New Hampshire and in France throughout their lives. Tuck also established the Amos Tuck School of Business at his alma mater, Dartmouth College, named in honor of his father, who was a U.S. Congressman from New Hampshireand a leader in establishing the Republican Party in the mid-1850s. The Society's special collections department preserves and shares thousands of unique and marvelous resources documenting the history of New Hampshire: over 3,000 manuscript collections, 200,000 images, 1,000 maps, and thousands of items of printed ephemera. The Library catalog lists more than 300 items specific to the American Civil War, including individual NH town records.
