Hitchcock published nearly fifty books in his lifetime
totaling some five million words. But his unpublished
writings may well have exceeded his published works.
They include sermons, letters, travel diaries,
teaching and field notes, essays, and poems. Most are
held in the Amherst College Archives and Special
Collections. A few are in the collections of the Henry
N. Flynt Library at Historic Deerfield and Pockumtuck
Valley Memorial Association in Deerfield.
In the course
of his research for All the
Light Here Comes from Above, author
Robert T. McMaster transcribed many of Edward
Hitchcock's unpublished works. Using voice-to-text
software, he dictated each manuscript into a word
processing document, then reread and proofed it.
Most of those
transcriptions are now available for reading,
downloading, and research purposes. We only ask that
the source be cited including the archive where the
original manuscript is held. Some or all of the
transcriptions will eventually be available through
the Amherst College Archives at acdc.amherst.edu.
