Record of Strangers

Since 1814, The Athenaeum has been visited by politicians, diplomats, scientists, and literary figures. Our guest book was traditionally called the Record of Strangers: each non-member, or “Stranger” was usually signed in by an Athenaeum member. Below is a searchable index of some of the names that have been indexed from the Record. The full volumes of the Record of Strangers from 1814-2006 have been digitized and may be viewed using the links found here.
