restricted access Beacon's Modern Era: 1945-2003

In 2004, Beacon Press will complete 150 years of continuous book publishing. To mark this important anniversary, Beacon retained author Susan Wilson to research the history of the press in archives and through extensive interviews. What follows is one section of the chapbook history, a narrative of Beacon's Modern Era (1945-2003). Ms. Wilson's notes from the extensive Beacon archives held at Harvard Andover Library, which includes a full annotated bibliography of books published by the press, are preserved for scholars and interested readers.
