We are pleased to make the Longfellow House Bulletin available on the web (in PDF files) because its contents include essays on topics of interest to a wider audience. The Bulletin also documents the National Park Service's stewardship of the house and the efforts of the Friends to support and supplement these efforts. Every issue contains a profile of a "Friend."

The Friends are indebted to Ruth Butler and Marilyn Richardson, the Bulletin's first two editors; Glenna Lang, its designer; and Jim Shea, of the NPS staff, for making the Bulletin possible. The Bulletin is jointly supported by the Friends and the Longfellow House National Historic Site.
