The Diaries of John Quincy Adams

Certainly there are many individuals who start journaling at age 12, but how many of them continue doing so until age 78? John Quincy Adams did just that, and the talented folks at the Massachusetts Historical Society have digitized images from his 51-volume diary and placed them online. The "Getting Started" section is, well, a good place to get started, as visitors will learn about the scope of this online collection, and how they can utilize these unique materials. While the site doesn't offer searchable transcriptions of the diary pages, a detailed timeline does give users information that will help them search for items of interest, such as Adams' recollections of the Treaty of Ghent or his time as minister to the Netherlands. Of course, the "Selected Pages" section affords users the opportunity to look at entries on the Monroe Doctrine, Napoleon, and his beloved mother, Abigail Adams.
