Archive Sheds Light on Chinese, American, and Pacific Relationships

Adam Matthew introduced China, America and the Pacific, a multilibrary archive that aggregates English-language primary sources on the trading and cultural relationships among those regions from 1700 to 1900.

The Massachusetts Historical Society, the Phillips Library Reading Room at PEM (Peabody Essex Museum), and 10 other international institutions offered their content, which ranges from ships’ logbooks to manuscripts and historic maps. Key themes in the collection include migration and immigration, trade and commerce, and exploration and discovery.

The archive also includes an interactive chronology, contextual essays, and image galleries. Axis Maps helped create interactive maps of Pacific exploratory, trading, and whaling voyages from primary sources. Users can track the progress of ships’ voyages in real time and explore port cities.
