This latest addition to the Library of Congress American Memory Project (last described in the January 8, 1999 Scout Report--http://scout.cs.wisc.edu/report/sr/1999/scout-990108.html#11}) will ultimately comprise approximately 4,700 items (totaling about 38,000 images). The first release contains 1400 items, including "correspondence, scientific notebooks, journals, blueprints, articles, and photographs documenting Bell's invention of the telephone and his involvement in the first telephone company, his family life, his interest in the education of the deaf, and his aeronautical and other scientific research." These date from 1865 to 1939, with the bulk from 1865 to 1920. Users may browse the collection by series, subject, or name, or conduct a keyword search. Special presentations at the site include a timeline, family tree, and collection highlights, including Bell's experimental notebook containing the entry from March 10, 1876, describing the first successful experiment with the telephone.
