Welcome to the McCormick Family Site
The McCormicks were a prominent family in South
Central Pennsylvania who greatly influenced history and commerce in
that area of the country. This site is dedicated to making personal
papers, pictures and other documents of that family available to historians,
students and the general public for the first time.
The purpose of this site is to facilitate research and
an appreciation for the impact of a prominent family in a region's culture
and history. In addition to family information, therefore, the site
contains texts and images that can be useful in American studies, social
history and culture studies in exploring themes such as gender, class,
local history, youth culture, philanthropy, politics and visual culture.
To make this kind of research possible, you can enter key words in the
search engine, which will direct you to texts, images and essays relating
to the key word. (Common key words include: politics, prominent
family members [such as Vance McCormick, Colonel Henry McCormick], essays
on gender, the Versailles Treaty.)
To get the most out of this site,
therefore, we suggest that you visit our Featured
Sections page, showcasing our most extensive/salient, most popular,
and recently updated material, or enter search words in our search
engine (to be implemented shortly), as mentioned above. We also
offer general information about the McCormick family, listed in the
black navigation bar at the left of each page.
