Pages from the 1838-1875 Laura Bridgman scrapbook.

Digitized Laura Bridgman scrapbooks

Collection of scrapbooks of clippings about Laura Bridgman (1829-1889) spanning 1838-1904.


Our goal is provide resources that are accessible to all

The “Laura Bridgman Newspaper Notices” scrapbooks have been digitized and made available on the Internet Archive website, which utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) and downloadable file formats, including Daisy, to provide access to users who are blind and visually impaired. We acknowledge that OCR is prone to errors, and cannot recognize graphics or handwritten text, thus creating barriers to these materials. It is our intention that by providing the materials as is, the resource is findable online to all. If any of Perkins Archives resources accessed online aren’t accessible in part or in whole, to a user because of a disability, we will create an accessible version upon request. 

Volume list

The scrapbook links are arranged by volume and years, earliest to latest, spanning 1838-1904. There are four volumes total. All links go to the Internet Archive.
