The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. (A.R.T.) is pleased to announce its January 2014 Programming Event:

An Evening at the Morris-Jumel Mansion

Thursday, January 30, 2014, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
6:30 PM - 7:15 PM Reception
7:15 PM - 8:30 PM Program


Morris-Jumel Mansion
65 Jumel Terrace, Washington Heights
New York, NY 10032

Please join us for an evening of discovery at Manhattan's historic Morris-Jumel Mansion!  Built in 1765 as a summer home for British Colonel Roger Morris and his American-born wife Mary Philipse, the Mansion later served as George Washington's headquarters for a time during the Revolutionary War, as well as the site of a dinner meeting between Washington and his cabinet in 1790.  Purchased by the City of New York in 1903, the Mansion now operates as a historic house museum dedicated to preserving and interpreting America's heritage.

This program will include a talk by Emilie Gruchow, a member of the Mansion's archival staff, on her recent discovery of the original handwritten manuscript of an important Colonial-era document authored by prominent New York jurist Robert R. Livingston, which was hidden among the Mansion's archival collections.  (Ms. Gruchow's discovery was recently chronicled in an article in the New York Times).  Ms. Gruchow will be joined by Michael D. Hattem,
teaching fellow and research assistant on The Papers of Benjamin Franklin at Yale University, who helped authenticate the manuscript.  Following the talk, Ms. Gruchow and Carol S. Ward, the Mansion's director, will provide tours of the Mansion for program attendees.

A.R.T. would like to thank the Morris-Jumel Mansion for graciously co-sponsoring this program.
