Houghton Library houses the historical archives of Houghton Mifflin Co., including editorial correspondence, contracts, and 19th- and 20th-century business papers, and they are open for research. The archive does not include copies of Houghton Mifflin’s publications.
There are several online finding aids for the cataloged parts of the collection in OASIS. Choose the Browse Finding Aids tab, Limit by repository = Houghton Library, enter “Houghton Mifflin” (without the quotation marks) in the Jump to box, and click GO.
Much of the 20th-century part of the archive remains uncataloged, but readers are welcome to look at all parts of the collection here in the Reading Room. We cannot make photocopies of uncataloged material. We are also unable to search for particular items in the unprocessed parts of the collection on a reader’s behalf due to its size and because much of the collection is stored off-site.
