18th-century reading

This is a good idea: The 18th Century Reading Room. It’s been set up as

the interactive home of the Eighteenth-Century Reading Room of the Mina Rees Library at the City University of NY Graduate Center. In this space, we will publish highlights from the collection, display images, and provide contact information for scholars with an interest in the available materials.

And while I think of it, I should direct you to Claire’s new blog, we are still here. Lots of good stories.

    “the Mina Rees Library”…that would be the same Mina Rees who ran mathematical research for the U.S. Navy.

    Sorry, I’ve never heard of the person before. (She? He?) Anyone who can tell me a bit more?

  3. David Foster says:

    She. Your post made me think that I’d heard the name before, so I googled it. Here’s a good summary:

    I thought it must be a woman’s name, but I wasn’t sure. Thanks for the link. I take it from that review that there isn’t a proper biography of her – it sounds as though there ought to be!
