Houghton has manuscripts relating to various members of the Alcott family, including Louisa May Alcott and Amos Bronson Alcott. You can browse a list of finding aids associated with the Alcott family by going to OASIS and choosing the Browse Finding Aids tab. Then choose Limit by repository = Houghton Library, enter “Alcott” (without the quotation marks) in the Jump to box, and click GO. You will then see a list of all the finding aids associated with the Alcott family and can click on each one to browse through the specific contents.

There are letters by the Alcotts in other collections, such as the Emerson papers, so you will want to do a search in OASIS as well. Enter Alcott in Personal Names, Limit by Repository = Houghton Library, and click GO.
