A Lively Experiment

Notes on collections at the RIHS

Thomas Tew

*******Updated, 9 October 2009 below******

Check out today’s Providence Journal for Thomas Morgan’s article on the Rhode Island pirate Thomas Tew (page E6 in the print edition and also available online). Tew’s story, along with those of many other pirates can be found in Edward Rowe Snow’s Pirates and Buccaneers of the Atlantic Coast, which is available at the Research Library (CT6860 .S65). And we’ll be highlighting a few more pirate-related items from the collection later this summer.


Brown’s Steven Lubar has provided pictures of an interesting, and interestingly re-purposed, Tew artifact.
