The original documents, donated by Professor Emeritus Patricia-Ann Lee, are housed in the library’s Special Collections and Archives. The documents are written on both parchment and rag paper and vary in size from 10 to 144 centimeters wide. Anyone can log in to this site (after creating an account) and transcribe these documents. If you have trouble creating an account, or have questions about this project, please contact library_support@skidmore.edu.
