Help transcribe the Casey Family Papers (Historic New England)

Help transcribe the Casey Family Papers (Historic New England)
Help spread the word about how members of the Casey family helped transform our nation’s capital.

Historic New England is looking for volunteers to help transcribe the personal and professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896) and his son Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940). These handwritten documents include information about leading the effort to complete work on the Washington Monument; the construction of the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress; the State, War, and Naval Building; and the Army Medical Museum. The papers provide fascinating insight into Washington politics and the private lives of this powerful New England family.

Transforming Washington, D.C.: The Impact of Thomas Lincoln Casey and Edward Pearce Casey on the Nation’s Capital is an extensive digitization project that makes the 40,500 pages of content from Historic New England's collection of papers from Brigadier General Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896) and his son Edward Pearce Casey (1864-1940)—accessible online.

This project is part of a larger digitization project funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission to increase access to this nationally significant collection.
