Financial History Collection
The International Center for Finance at the Yale School of Management Collection of Financial History is one of Beinecke Library’s more recent initiatives. It is a collaborative undertaking with the Yale School of Management and reflects the recognition that the preservation and study of historical documents is vital to broader scholarship on the role of capital markets in society. The collection was founded in 2001 with an initial matching gift from an anonymous donor. Recent acquisitions include documents relating to the development of capital markets in Europe, Colonial America and the United States.
