Nathaniel Hawthorne In Salem website

North Shore Community College welcomes you to Hawthorne in Salem.

This Website was funded in May of 2000 by a three-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and is a collaborative effort of North Shore Community College in Danvers, Massachusetts, and three Salem, Massachusetts museums with important Hawthorne collections: The Peabody Essex Museum , the House of the Seven Gables Historic Site , and the Salem Maritime National Historic Site. Also, the sections on The Custom House chapter of The Scarlet Letter, the architecture of the Salem Custom House, and some parts of the Life and Times section were funded in 1999 by a one-year grant from the Community College Humanities Association.

This site is dedicated to two people who helped me draft the project proposal and without whose guidance and support I probably would never have had the energy to re-submit the proposal when it was not funded by NEH the first year it was submitted:

  • the late Professor Joseph Flibbert from Salem State College who offered invaluable suggestions for the project proposal and whose work on Hawthorne is featured on this site thanks to his wife, Marilyn Salleck,
  • and my late husband, Professor Dan Popp from North Shore Community College, who died during the first year of the project and whose editorial assistance, encouragement and belief in me and the project were vital to the ultimate success of the proposal.

Terri Whitney, Professor of English, North Shore Community College, and Project Director
