This project, prepared for the Archives Department of George C. Gordon Library, describes and analyzes Worcester area prose authors and the rare book trade with the intent to expand and publicize the Archives' current holdings of Worcester authors. We investigated the rare book trade and the authors' lives through primary works, secondary works, and interviews. We have created a web publication on the authors and holdings at Gordon Library and have made a list of recommendations to the Archives Department on the acquisition of appropriate books to expand the collection in a cost-effective manner.
