These stipends have been established with the goal of bringing greater interest to the archival holdings of the historical site. These holdings include materials (letters, manuscripts, books, photographs, material objects) from the 17th to the early 20th century. There are art objects, historic furnishings and decorative arts dating from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. But the strongest part of the collection focuses on the taste of Longfellow, his wife Frances Appleton, and their children.
To encourage the use of these archives and collections, the Friends of the Longfellow House will offer two Fellowships with a stipend of $1,200: a Diana Korzenik Fellowship and a Stanley Paterson Fellowship. Award recipients are expected to be in residence conducting their research in the Cambridge/Boston area for at least a two-week period.
