Welcome Scholars

From the Director

As one of the world's leading institutes for collections-based research, The Huntington has provided essential support and a congenial environment for the conduct of scholarship in the humanities for almost a century. We are committed to providing faculty and graduate students access to the riches in our extraordinary collections, and also to facilitating a sense of community among and between them.

Research at The Huntington facilitates humanistic research through its highly competitive and generous fellowship program; through its stimulating slate of academic conferences and public lectures; and through its publications, including scholarly articles and monographs published by fellows; and through its own journal, the Huntington Library Quarterly.

Welcome to one of the world's leading independent research centers for the humanities.

Dr. Steve Hindle, W.M. Keck Foundation Director of Research
