Main Description
Former Massachusetts Historical Society director Louis Leonard Tucker's Clio's Consort: Jeremy Belknap and the Founding of the Massachusetts Historical Society offers not only a useful biographical sketch of Belknap, but also a close examination of his values as a historian and an in-depth treatment of the beginnings of the Massachusetts Historical Society and Belknap's preeminent role in the establishment of the Society in 1791 (as the first historical society in the Americas).
