Memoirs of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
Mem Am Acad Arts Sci
Published/Hosted by American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Discontinued in 1957. The Memoirs, the American Academy's first serial publication, were the primary outlet for the publication of papers communicated to the Academy. The wide variety of topics covered by the Memoirs through the middle of the twentieth century mirrored the research interests of Academy members, including mathematics, the physical and biological sciences, medicine, the social sciences and humanities, business, government, public affairs, and the arts. The Memoirs also included lists of members, gifts, the Academy's statutes, and eulogies on special occasions. The first volume was issued in 1785-five years after the Academy's founding. The original series had four volumes (to 1821); a second series was issued in nineteen volumes from 1833 to 1946; the terminal volume in 1957 was called Series 3, Volume 24 in continuation of the total number of volumes in the first and second series.
