Ron M. Potvin


This special double issue of Newport History contains a complete description of the Society's collections, assembled for the first time in a single space. Joan Youngken, the Society's Deputy Director for Collections, contributed the sections on museum collections, and photographs and graphics collections; Bertram Lippincott III, the Society's Librarian, wrote about the library collections; and Ron M. Potvin, Curator of Library Special Collections, describes the Society's manuscripts and archives. The introduction was written by the Society's Executive Director, Daniel Snydacker. · This issue of Newport History is intended as a guide to the Society's collections for use by researchers, and stands alone as a chapter of the community's history.
