The New Netherland Project

The Island at the Center of the World relies on the work of dozens of scholars who have devoted themselves to a reappraisal of the Dutch colony, but more than anything it relies on the translation work of Charles Gehring. Based at the New York State Library in Albany and under the auspices of the NEH-supported nonprofit organization he has formed, the New Netherland Project (www.nnp.org), he has spent thirty years translating and publishing the court cases, council minutes, and correspondence of the colony, and so bringing this forgotten piece of American beginnings to light.
