The ledger of Lemuel Adams, the shop principal of the Hartford, Connecticut, cabinetmaking firm Kneeland & Adams (1792-1795), was discovered at the University of Miami in 2016. It features the shop’s financial accounts, biographical information, customer lists, shop output, and other new information – leading to new scholarship on the firm and its larger network of cabinetmaking firms in southern New England. This forum will share the ongoing research of the firm and its significance to the history of commercial craftsmanship in New England.
