Marcurius Newsletter

We have retired the paper version of the Marcurius. But its name lives on in our quarterly e-newsletter e-Marcurius


"De Nieu Nederlanse Marcurius"

De Nieu Nederlanse Marcurius began in February 1985 as the quarterly newsletter of the New Netherland Project, edited by NNRC Director Dr. Charles Gehring. It contains news of the New Netherland Project, details of associated activities, and articles pertaining to Dutch history and culture in both Europe and the New World. In May 1988, a section "Totidem Verbis" was added at the end of most editions. This section contains longer essays on a variety of topics, including documents, translations, matters of linguistic interest, accounts of Dutch exploration and circumnavigation, biographies, a historical calendar, and numerous other matters of interest and relevance to those who follow and support New Netherland studies.

Below are Marcurius issues by year, along with an index of subjects, people, events, and other significant citations in these issues. A separate document lists the articles in "Totidem Verbis" by date.
