Reese Fellowship

In 1999, the William Reese Company established the Reese Fellowships in American Bibliography and the History of the Book in the Americas; participating institutions include the American Antiquarian Society, the Bibliographical Society of America, the John Carter Brown Library, the Library of Congress, Yale University, and Rare Book School. At RBS, Reese Fellowships support a graduate student or beginning antiquarian bookseller during several weeks at RBS in a position combining staff duties with the opportunity to take an RBS course focusing on American themes.
