Historical Research

I offer comprehensive historical research services to scholars, journalists, lawyers, authors, teachers, and organizations. Whether you know exactly what you're looking for or need assistance developing a research plan, I can help.

  • Archival Document Retrieval – When you know what you’re looking for but can’t get to the archive, I can scan or copy the contents of a specific range of boxes or folders.

  • Open-Ended Research – I offer ongoing research assistance for larger projects. I can also help with research planning by surveying potentially relevant collections so that you can make informed decisions about where to focus your research efforts and funds.

  • Research and writing support for historical exhibits, websites, and more. Visit The Long 19th Amendment Project Portal for examples of this work.

Based in Boston, I have ready access to archives and special collections libraries at all of the area's major institutions and can travel to repositories up to 90 minutes drive from my home. I also routinely travel to Philadelphia and to Austin, TX and am available for research in both locales.

For individuals and organizations interested in designing and executing digital history or archives projects, I provide project scoping and design support, user research, and digital tools assessment.


I'm also a skilled tech-to-scholar-to-librarian translator and can help you ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page.
