With this volume the Maryland Historical Society inaugurates
a new series of publications. As stated in the constitution of the
Society, adopted in 1844, one of its major objects is to disseminate
knowledge of Maryland history. This the Society has endeavored
to do, particularly through its meetings and its publications.

The latter, we may note by way of record, have been divided
into the following series:

Annual reports and catalogs of exhibitions, appearing at
intervals, 1850 to date (pamphlets).

Fund Publications, 1867-1901, thirty-seven volumes, mono-
graphs on Maryland and various historical topics, many
being addresses before the Society. The name is derived
from the fund of $20, 000 given in 1867 by George
Peabody, half the income of which is dedicated to the
Society's publications.

Archives of Maryland, 1883 to date, published by order of
the State, described in the present author's Bibliography,
page 188.

Maryland Historical Magazine, March, 1906, to date, in part
supported by income from the Peabody Fund.

Occasional publications, 1844 to date. Many of these were
delivered as addresses before the Society and others are
monographs on historical topics.

Maryland in World War II; Volume I—Military Partici-
1950; Volume II—Industry and Agriculture, 1951.
Other volumes in preparation. Compiled, edited and pub-
lished by the War Records Division of the Society by
order of the State.

Maryland History Notes, 1943—, a quarterly bulletin of news
of the Society and related activities in the State.

Wheeler Leaflets on Maryland History, 1944—, a series of
illustrated circulars for young people.

Since the founding of the Magazine there has been no regular
means of publishing longer monographs or other special studies.
