Object Name Collection
Scope & Content BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
The family almanac appears to have been the first form of calendar used in America. A study of the social and religious conditions existing among the American people for the first hundred years or more of their history reveals the fact that the family almanac was held in nearly the same degree of veneration as the hymn book, the prayer book, or even the Bible itself. By daily reference to the almanac the people readily kept tab with the days of the week, the month, and the year as they came and went. (information from Key to the Almanac and the Sidereal Heavens by L. J. Heatwole, 1908)
